Volunteers called on to fix bandleader's ND home

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- Volunteers are being recruited to help make repairs to Lawrence Welk's boyhood home in southern North Dakota.

The three-day effort begins on Aug. 1 near Strasburg.

The state Historical Society voted in January to buy the homestead from Welk's nieces. The purchase agreement was contingent on negotiated repairs being made to the property, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Legislature last year included $100,000 in the Historical Society's budget for the purchase but lawmakers stipulated that repairs must first be made.
