Sunday, May 24, will be “Beatrice Strand Day” at the Clarissa United Methodist Church. The congregation will honor her at the morning worship service. Mrs. Strand has been teaching Clarissa and Eagle Bend Sunday School for a period of 50 years.
Fred B. Engelmann, formerly of Clarissa, was one of two men who invented devices on which the U.S. Patent Office issued patents to the Sperry Rand Corporation based on work done by them. He invented a device which measures the magnetic properties of nickel and iron metals used in the production of Univac computers.
