Pequot Lakes Historical Society meeting is May 5
Group invites residents to contribute ideas and thoughts
PEQUOT LAKES — The Pequot Lakes Area Historical Society invites residents to attend monthly meetings the first Thursday of every month from May through October.
The society will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 5, at the Cole Memorial Building.
Residents are welcome to attend and contribute their ideas and observations. The historical society hopes the public is interested in this group and in the work it does to preserve local history.
At the annual meeting in January, the historical society board elected new officers. The historical society will mark its 25th anniversary this year and plans an open house in the summer to celebrate this milestone. The society will again have a float in the July 4 parade.
Other items on the agenda in the next six months and beyond include upgrading display spaces in the museum, hatching new approaches to member recruitment and increasing the group's visibility and contribution to life in Pequot Lakes.
