The McLeod County Historical Society would like to invite you and your family to our 2011 Annual Meeting. This year’s guest will be none other than our County namesake, the Honorable Martin McLeod. Executive Director Lori Pickell-Stangel will present this year’s theme history booklet, “The Life and Times of Martin McLeod”, with the help from John Lofdahl, who will be playing McLeod and reading excerpts from his diary. McLeod came to what would become Minnesota in 1837 as an explorer, adventurer, and liberator. He stayed in Minnesota to make his fortune in the Fur Trade, but became one of the leaders and forward thinking promoters of the great state we now call Minnesota and the county that bears his name.
The Museum is thrilled to be holding this year’s Annual Meeting at the wonderfully repurposed and restored Glencoe City Center. The program and meal will be held in the elegant South Ballroom, with our presentation via the large overhead projector and sound system. The Historical Society Board of Directors and Executive Director will present this year’s Donor and Volunteer of the Year, the great accomplishments the Museum has made with the help of so many of our generous donors, and a look to the Museum’s future goals and how each one of us can aid in preserving our past and inspiring our future! The Society will vote to fill our three open Board positions and have a short business meeting.
Dinner will be provided by Lindy’s Cafe, with a delicious meal of chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, green beans, Caesar salad, dessert and your choice of coffee or milk. Tickets are just $12 per person, when you RSVP on or before Friday, October 22nd. Tickets may be purchased the day of the event, or at the door for $15
