A Party Supply Sale and Huge Yard Sale are held each year during Heritage Days in June to draw additional patrons to town for the museum’s weekend event. It was suggested that a Flea Market would be a welcomed addition to the Christmas Stroll. The first year’s Flea Market was held in vacant space uptown. Vendors expressed the desire to continue to participate in the event, but wanted a location that provided food on site. Since that date, the event has been held at ILS. Christian education has been a mission of Immanuel Lutheran Church since 1908. The school is accredited by the National Lutheran School Accreditation.
