Rotarians learned more about the 1949 St. Anthony's Hospital during their meeting April 12.

Local historian Jane Ries shared stories regarding the fateful night. Ries' husband, Mark, is the grandson of the man, Frank Ries, who served as an overseer of the old hospital and was called to the scene when the fire was discovered. He died in the fire.

Ali Habing served as Rotary weekly program chairman.
