Little Falls receives gift on Lindbergh’s birthday

Lindbergh-bust-donationMayor Cathy VanRisseghem, left, accepted on behalf of the Little Falls City Council, the gift of a bust of Lindbergh from Melissa Peterson, new director of the Lindbergh Historic Site. Peterson said the bust had been donated from the Lindbergh Foundation in Anoka, but that the site in Little Falls already had such a bust and wanted the city to be able to display it, since Little Falls is known as the “Land of Lindbergh.” Council Member LeeAnn Doucette noted Feb. 4, the day of the presentation, was Lindbergh’s birthday and that if he were alive, he would have been 101 years old.
