They started by taking off the exterior walls that had been put over the logs only to find that that dirt was, as Maribeth explained, more than a 100 years of soot that had built up. Stacy said they scrubbed and scraped to find the logs under- neath while an exhaust fan spit the grime onto the snow outside. They then repacked the joints with a cement base. Luther explained that the home originally had been built in a space that his family de- scribed as being on the wrong side of the trees. Following a harsh winter, it was decided that they would move the_cabin to its present location. They built the foundation out of field rock and created walls from 18-inch thick!logs that would become : ........ ,~ ~ .... room ...... sitting. ,Stacy said that homes these days can look like any hotel lobby, but this is a unique room with the homiest feel you can /'ind. "We were honored she asked us " he said of getting to work on the project. The remodel, much like the original cabin, was only possible with the help of the community. Maribeth said that theentire project came together with help from around Park River. Sam- son Electric was charged with the task of running wires and outlets through the logs. Maribeth smiled when she explained that the electrician was a little stunned when they explained that what they wanted was to put the outlet into the log Photo: Larry Biri Above: Maribeth Anderson speaks with Luther Meberg about the home his great grandfather built and the remodel project that Maribeth undertook with the help of the Park River community businesses. and hide the wires: up to code.

The program will be followed by tours of Saint Gianna's. As it is meant to be a family event, "Jump for Joy" inflatables and other ac- tivities for children also will be available throughout the day. The home was Created out of a building once used as boarding school and a convent built in 192 l by the Sisters of the Resurrection out of Chicago who came to edu- cate children in the area. After 50 years, the school closed and was left empty, for the most part, for 30 years. Schanilec said that the Director Mary Pat Jahner had a vision to create a maternity home and she, Father Hils, and Colleen Samson came together to make the dream a reality. their baby life," Schanilec said. So, what they do at the home is provide a safe, loving place for those who may have experienced situations of abuse, pressure, fear and a lack of support. She said that the mothers pri- marily come from North Dakota and some from Minnesota, but a number of women have come from out of state including those from Montana, Wyoming, Louisiana, New York, and Washington. Schanilec said that the home's services not only are open to women who stay at the home, but women in need also can access services such as counseJ, ing, refer- rals, and baby supplies through Saint Gianna's. Of the babies born to mothers who have stayed at the home nearly 20 percent have been given up for adoption. Most recently, Schanilec In 200 l, the board was formed, said, a motherhad a beautiful baby They brought in a contractor to see boy and gave him to a couple that if the building could be salvaged had been waiting for a child for and sure enough, he said it had "great bones." Volunteers swarmed seven years. in on the 9,000 square-foot historic buiiding to restore it to its former glory to accommodate the needs of the mothers and ehildren'who now have found comfort within its walls.. Schanilec said that from the idea to the home's opening only took two years. "God opened a lot of doors, and windows," she said, to make Saint Gianna,s happen. "It's home. And that was our goal." The home provides what they describe as a spiritual, family-type environment in which to offer a place for quiet reflection and redi- rection. In addition to offering opportu- nities for spiritual growth, women who wish to pursue educational ad- vancement are encouraged to do so by attending high school, pur- suing iheir GED, taking vocational classes or attending a tech school or university nearby. .. The home's services are open women of all ages and faiths at no cost. "The women who have chosen to come to Saint Gianna's have al- ready made the decision to give "For the love of the child she gave the baby to this couple," she said adding that ft takes a lot of love to do something like:ttfat. For 10 years, Saint Gianna's has been a safe haven in Walsh County offering a place for women "one mother, one baby, one family at a time," Schanilec said. The celebration will continue on Monday, Sept. 9 with an Anniver- sary Banquet at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks, N.D. The event begins with a 5:30 p.m. social and a 6 p.m. dinner. Speaker Gloria Purvis will delive'r a pro-life mes- sage at the event. On Oct. 27, the short film "Crescendo" will be viewed in Crookston, Minn., in honor of the home's anniversary.
