"The Wadena County Historical Society would like to offer our sympathies to those affected by this tragedy," said Sandi Pratt, director of the Wadena County Historical Society. But Pratt said her group would like to preserve the history of this monumental event.
"If you have any photos of your house and area struck by the June 17 tornado, we'd like to see them," Pratt said. "Send us your story to as to where you were when the tornado came through Wadena and how it affected you. You can send to 603 Jefferson Street North, Wadena, MN 56482 or send by e-mail email@example.com if your system is still live. We would like to wish you well through rebuilding and much energy to you all."
