Open House a Success

Whew – we had so many visitors to our Holiday Open House on Saturday, we are just now catching our breath! What a fun day!

It was great so see so many friendly faces checking out the Minnesota on the Map exhibit, the regular museum exhibits and all the baskets on the silent auction.

We raised $4000 on the silent auction and added several new annual and lifetime members to our roster. Thank you everyone!

Thanks also to: all the wonderful cookie bakers for the goodies, Dick & Erma Sievertson for providing entertainment and the children of Ann & Any preschool for their artwork.

Merry Christmas from the Pope County Museum!
