A jazzy evening

The Friends of the History Museum of East Otter Tail County will hold its annual volunteer appreciation banquet on Saturday, Feb. 6 at the ITOW Veterans Museum in Perham.

This event is an opportunity to thank the more than 40 volunteers who make it possible for both the History Museum and the ITOW Veterans Museum to be open daily, all year round. In addition, volunteers provide many needed services so that funds raised by the Friends can be used for programs and services to the public such as on-line access to local historical records and photographs, oral histories of area veterans, and new and exciting events and exhibits in the arts and humanities for both youth and adults.

The banquet will begin at 6 p.m. with a social hour. Dinner and the meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.

After the meeting, at 8 p.m., there will be a concert by Ministry of Jazz, some of the finest musicians in the area.

Tickets for the evening are $25 and include both dinner and concert. Dinner-only tickets are available for $15 and Concert-only tickets are available for $10 in advance. Concert tickets will be $12 at the door. Reservations are desirable.

For ticket reservations, call 218-346-7676, 218-346-7678, or email
