Also at the annual meeting will be election of board members.There are three open positions and if you are interested in helping preserve our county’s heritage,please contact one of the Board members.
The Annual meeting will be held in the Sanford Room at the Community Building starting at 2:00 p.m.Coffee and goodies will be served.Door prizes of annual memberships will be given.
Throughout  2024, there will be special events with guest speakers,so please check back to the Events page for all the details.Of course,the continuing events will be the Oldies but Goodies sale during Flekkefest, and the Night at the Museum during Halloween.
During this year, we want to refresh or rearrange some of the exhibits.There are so many wonderful pieces that have been donated from our Grant County families.Sometimes we walk right by the exhibits and miss seeing pieces because they have been there for a while.We would like to hear from you about the items or exhibits that you enjoy coming back to see – and bringing family to see.
Come, visit….. often.
