Hello from the museum! We had a fairly busy week. 104 school children toured the museum this week. First Graders from Bertha Hewitt and Second Graders from Park Rapids.
The children are always excited to begin the tour. Most of the groups knew what the building was years ago, but they had no idea what you did at a Courthouse other than go to jail and get divorced ( those were two of the most popular answers that I received.) Of course the girls like the Toggery with all the clothing and the boys just want to see the machine gun. They all seem impressed with the schoolroom and would not want to live in the one room cabin. It is interesting to see the museum through the eyes of a child.
We are getting organized for the Fund Raising Dinner at the Legion on Saturday June 11, 2011 from 4:30 to 7:30..mark it on your calendar. We will have special music that evening at 6:00 PM during the dinner!
We will also have a silent auction and will gladly accept handmade items at my office in the museum.
