Children’s events coming to museum

Now is the time to be a member of the Freeborn County Historical Museum, Library and Village.  Currently we are taking registrations for 2017 memberships. We also have corporate memberships from $100 to $1,000 or more available. Incentives are available to businesses if they purchase a membership of over $500. I would love to talk about those incentives with you; if you are interested, email me at or call me at 507-373-8003.

There are so many amazing benefits to being a member. Some of those benefits include periodically free admission into events sponsored by the museum, use of the library for research and supporting the preservation of the history of Freeborn County. If all of this is not enough of a reason — wait, there is more. You can visit the museum year round. 

We continue to host defensive driving classes at the museum. Our last refresher class for 2016 is from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Nov. 17. The cost of the class is $20 for ARRP and $25 for non-members, which includes the class materials and administrative host fees. We ask that everyone pre-registers by contacting the museum at 507-373-8003.

Two exciting events for children are coming up that involve the museum. The first event is from 1 to 3 p.m. Oct. 30 at Country Inn & Suites. This event is the annual trick or treat event sponsored by Power 96. Come visit the museums room “Under The Sea” for a free pass to the museum. The other event is our annual Christmas gathering that will be on Dec. 3 at the museum. This year we will feature great activities for children to include Santa’s Workshop, pictures with Santa, fresh-baked cookies and Christmas tree displays. 

Remember to check us out on Facebook and make sure to follow us to get updates on the museum. Also, you can hear me on KATE radio every Sunday morning for updates from the museum. I love visitors, too, so come on in and see me. We are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays.
