JEANNE DOTY TO PERFORM FOR CARLTON
COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY ANNUAL MEETING
The Carlton County Historical Society will hold its 68th
Annual Meeting on Saturday April 22, 2017, at 1:00 pm at the Moose Lake Area
Historical Society's Fires of 1918 Museum at 900 Folz Boulevard in Moose Lake.
All CCHS members and the public are welcome to attend. The
event is free, and includes refreshments, a short business meeting to vote for
new board members, a silent auction, and a musical program by Jeanne Doty.
Music has been in Jeanne
Doty’s life since she was a young girl. Every family gathering included
playing and singing – particularly Finnish folk music. Her family band, The
Third Generation, recorded four albums, toured Finland three times, and
even performed on Prairie Home Companion in its early days! Now that she
has retired as Associate Professor of Music and chair of the keyboard area from
UMD, Jeanne has made a commitment to renew her connection with her Finnish
roots. Her newest program is entitled Viola Turpeinen – connecting the
generations in the Upper Midwest & Carlton County, and Jeanne will
actually perform on an instrument given to a 14-year-old Turpeinen. Jeanne also
serves on the board of the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council.
Join us for this event and enjoy the music! For more
information call the Carlton County Historical Society at 218-879-1938.
BARN CALENDAR AVAILABLE AT MUSEUM
The Carlton County Historical Society announces the first
publication by its Barn Photo Committee, a "Barns of Carlton County -
The Barn Calendar contains 13 images of existing barns in
Carlton County. It represents the efforts of our volunteer Barn Photo
Committee, which has been meeting for over a year to begin a long-term project
of photographing all the barns of Carlton County before they cease to exist.
The committee shares the mission of the Carlton County Historical
Society to "collect, preserve and disseminate the history of Carlton
County". This project to collect the images of our county's barns ties into
Governor Dayton's proclamation declaring the month of September 2016 as Local
Heritage Preservation Month.
If you are interested in attending our monthly committee
meetings, have a barn or know of a barn we could photograph, please call the
museum at 218-879-1938. Our "Barns of Carlton County - 2017" calendar
is available for sale at the CCHS museum at 406 Cloquet Avenue in Cloquet MN. The
museum is open 5 days a week, Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 9 am to 4 pm.
For more information, call 218-879-1938.
