Hope to see you all on March 22nd!
The society has been in existence for more than eight months and it is now time to expand and publicize our organization. While we do have a solid core of supporters, we are looking for more people to back our efforts. In addition, the financial contributions of members are critical components of our operations and projects.
Several society events are in the planning stages for this summer. A horseback ride along area trails is scheduled for the beginning of July. In August, the society is sponsoring the 2nd Annual History Day at the Silver Mountain Station. Please check back for more details as they become available.
The society continues to push ahead with two important historic projects in the area. Progress has been made in the Dorothea Mitchell Highway 593 memorial dedication-we hope to have some updates in the very near future. Efforts continue in the North-Gunflint Lakes Historic Corridor preservation, albeit very slowly. Other projects are in the works, and they will proceed as time and funds allow.
Please consider joining us. If you are already a member, please let your friends and family know about the society. Help us preserve history!
