CROSSLAKE-The Crosslake Area Historical Society maintains the Historic Log Village and Museum in Crosslake.
Each building is furnished to depict the industries and daily life of Crosslake in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Preservation and administration of the village is expensive, the society reported. Most recently, a log cabin was donated to be used as a visitor center, but the historical society must cover the cost of having it moved to the site as well as other costs to permanently placing the building in the village.
A May 21 fundraiser is planned at Whitefish Lodge and Suites in Crosslake. The evening begins with a social hour and silent auction at 6 p.m. followed by a dinner at 7 p.m.
Tickets for the dinner are set $25 each and are available for purchase at Whitefish Lodge and Suites or by contacting Mary Dischinger at 612-940-1575.
This year's dinner menu is a mixed greens salad with candied almonds, dried cranberries, carrot with a balsamic honey mustard dressing; chicken Ragu pan seared chicken breast, grape tomato, onion and pappardelle pasta in a tomato demi-glace; served with grilled broccolini. Dessert is apple dumplings with vanilla bean ice cream.
Monetary donations, sponsorships, silent and live auction items and volunteers are needed from historical society members, businesses and the public to make this event a success. A donation of $200 would be accepted as a sponsor, however donations of any size are requested and would be recognized. Those interested in supporting this event with a donation of a silent or live auction item, contact Dischinger to arrange for a drop-off location or pickup.
The historical society is a nonprofit independent organization, not subsidized by any governmental agency. It is funded by memberships, donations and several dedicated events and fundraisers.
