Historical Society Spring Fundraiser planned

CROSSLAKE—The Crosslake Area Historical Society, which maintains the Historic Log Village and Museum in Crosslake, is hosting a fundraiser in May.

Each building at the Village is furnished to depict the industries and daily life of Crosslake in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Preservation and administration of this Village is expensive, the historical 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 22 fundraiser is planned at Whitefish Lodge and Suites. Tickets for the dinner are $25 each and are available for purchase at Whitefish Lodge and Suites or by contacting Mary Dischinger at 612-940-1575 or Joan Callender at 218-692-3482. The evening begins with a social hour and silent auction at 6 p.m. followed by dinner at 7 p.m., designed and served by Manhattan's staff.

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. Sponsorships are $200. For those interested in supporting this event with a donation of a silent or live auction item, contact Mary or Joan.

The Historical Society is a nonprofit independent organization, not subsidized by any governmental agency. It maintains a 501(c)(3) tax status. It is funded by memberships, donations and several dedicated events and fundraisers.
