The framed portraits of Abe and George have been moved to a different wall and replaced with a color mural. The 4′ x 8′ photo mural has been installed on the wall by the computer terminals. The original photo was taken from the Munson Lakes Nutrition tower (thanks, John) and shows Howard Lake, Memorial Park and surrounding areas in the Spring.
This is the first stage in the Friends of the Library’s plan to give our indoor library space an update. The photos don’t do the mural justice, so please stop in and have a look. We appreciate your feedback.
“Interesting Aspects of the Dakota Uprising” Sunday, Sept. 30 2 PM. Community Room, 617 6th Ave, Howard Lake MN. Independent historian and author Curtis Dahlin will draw material from his numerous books to present information on the US-Dakota War of 1862 in Minnesota. Many Minnesotans know little about the events that took place 150 years ago. Dahlin will fill in many of those blanks. He will have his books available for sale at this event.
While not directly related to the 1862 events, Ed Claessen will present information about the 1863 Dustin Massacre which occurred just west of what is now Howard Lake.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Howard Lake Library, more information may be obtained by calling 763-658-4278.
Light refreshments will be served.
