 The very sad news was reported that our talented Treasurer, Raymond Milford died last Friday at North Memorial Hospital of lung cancer. His memorial service was planned for Monday, May 4th at the Robbinsdale Masonic Temple. Ray will be greatly missed by all of us. A moment of quiet was held in his honor.

 Announcement: We are now in need of a treasurer and volunteers are welcome to apply.

 Announcement: Our Museum has been “re-done” with many of the articles we had at the Hennepin History Museum. Many of our exhibits from past years are now in storage to be used at some time in the future. Diane invites members and friends to visit this new display.

 “Save the Terrace Group” has been organizing the steps that will make the Terrace Theater an historic site and restoring the building to usefulness as a multiuse building.

 The guest speaker that was scheduled for this meeting could not make it at the last moment. (Roger Grey’s family came to this meeting especially for this talk but due to their time constraints they could not stay for the “replacement” speaker.)

 Pete Richie has asked Pam Albinson of the Hennepin History Museum to bring her memories of the Minneapolis Aquatennial. Ms Albinson is a former Queen of the Lakes and ambassador for the City of Minneapolis. Lots of stories were shared. A film was also shown of Aquatennial events from 1961.

 Thank you to Jerry Smothers and Ron and Betty Andersen for treats today.

 

Carolyn Lageson, Secretary
