MLEF is proud to partner with Spud History in the creation of "Once A Spud... Always A Spud" thanks to a grant from the MN Historical Society. The project has been well received and has sold over 1500 copies.


You will receive updates from us at MLEF regarding your pre-sale book order. As indicated on your receipts, the automated message about pickup/delivery times from our store-front (Weebly) is incorrect. Spud History has submitted the book draft to the publisher and we expect to have the books ready within the first couple weeks in December.


Please watch your inbox for an update in late November when Spud History has a plan for pickup dates and location within the district. Likewise, we will share shipping updates for those that paid for that service. For questions regarding your order/s, please email us at the email below and not the school district.


We thank you for your patience as we work through this successful and exciting endeavor in celebration of the district's 150th Anniversary!
