Give to the Max Day, an annual day of giving sponsored by GiveMN.org, will occur Thursday, November 14, 2013. On this day, people are encouraged to make their year-end donations to nonprofit organizations around Minnesota. The Morrison County Historical Society has a GiveMN.org page at http://givemn.razoo.com/story/Morrison-County-Historical-Society through which you can donate on Give to the Max Day or any other day of the year. New this year is the ability to make a donation prior to Give to the Max Day and have it count toward that day.
In addition to our GiveMN.org page, MCHS can also take donations via credit and debit carts through our new Square register. No need to stop in at the museum to make a donation. You can phone it in and staff will enter your card info into Square. Call 320-632-4007 if you want to make a donation by phone.
Your contributions help keep the Morrison County Historical Society vital in its mission to preserve and share county history, so please consider making a tax-deductible donation anytime. Thank you for your support.
There is nothing like a mistake to get people’s attention. (Perhaps we should make them more often. )
When I did the layout of the flier for the upcoming Morrison County Historical Society annual dinner, I inadvertently listed Ricky Masog as the person catering the event. Ricky Masog is the welder currently in the process of restoring the museum’s fountain. The person who is catering our annual dinner is Ricky Turner of Randall and Four Cheeks BBQ sauce fame.
The flier with the incorrect information went out to our members and our E-News subscribers. I apologize for the confusion. Below is a corrected version of the flier.
Buttered Up! Creameries of Morrison County – MCHS annual dinner notice.

The creamery was the heart of small communities around Morrison County throughout the late 1800s and well into the 1900s. Farm families made regular trips to bring cream to their local creamery for processing. To celebrate the central role played by creameries, the Morrison County Historical Society is presenting “Buttered Up! Creameries of Morrison County” as the theme for its upcoming annual dinner.
“Buttered Up!” will take place on Sunday, September 22, 2013, at the Bingo Park Community Building in Randall, MN. The history of creameries around the county will be presented via images and artifacts. The restoration of the Randall Creamery, now The Old Creamery Quilt Shop owned by Linda Thesing and Janelle Johnson, will be featured, including tours of the building. Ricky Turner, who will be catering the event, will share his stories of working at the creamery.
The MCHS annual dinner will start at 4 p.m. with a social hour. Dinner will be served at 5 p.m., with the program and tours of the creamery to follow. Cost of the dinner is $15 per person. To make reservations, call 320-632-4007.
