The Grant County Historical Society’s annual meeting is scheduled for Saturday, April 22rd at 2:00 p.m. We will meet in the Sanford room of the Elbow Lake Community Building.
Gay Ekberg will present a program on General Theodore Barrett. Over the last several months, a committee has been developing an original play to be performed by the Prairie Wind Players during Barrett’s Old Setters Reunion. Gay has spent many hours researching General Barrett for the committee at both our museum and at the Stevens County Museum in Morris. Her presentation is based on this research.
The business portion of the meeting will include electing board members, review of the past year and highlighting plans for this year, Grant County’s 150th anniversary. Five board positions are up for election. There are two full 3-year terms open, two 2-year terms and one 1-year term. Three of these positions cover two board members who passed away in the last year and another who resigned due to health issues. At this point we have one person committed to joining the board. If you have questions as to what is involved or if you are interested in serving on the board, please contact the museum or one of the current board members.
Annual reports will be available to be picked up at the museum after April 22nd or you may request a copy of the report be emailed to you as a .pdf file.
