WALSH COUNTY HISTORICAL MUSEUM REPORT: The Minto Museum Report was given by Ken Hoffman. He mentioned that they have been able to stay open longer in the season with the nice weather. He believes attendance is up compared to prior summers, and the Farmer’s Market was very successful on Tuesdays, with money generated from the Merry-Go-Round rides. He hopes to make this an annual event. Looking at other events at Heritage Village, he mentioned the Craft Show over Summerfest went very well. They will be having a benefit for Gloris Larson on October 4, and they hope to remain open through the end of October. A new edition to Heritage Village main building is the Ora Marie Stewart’s doll collection. It was also stated by many that it would be nice to get more showcases for the main building.
