History Happy Hour slated for Friday at the Iron County Museum
CASPIAN– The Iron County Historical Museum will host the second in its History Happy Hour series from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday.
This month’s program will feature Daniel Truckey, director/curator of the Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center, who will present “Polar Bears: Forgotten Heroes of the Russian Invasion of WWI.”
“There were several soldiers from the U.P. that participated in the Russian expedition,” said Erika Sauter, museum director. “Folks can look forward to learning something new while enjoying food and drinks served from Toti’s Tavern right here on our museum grounds.”
A $5 admission fee will be collected at the door. Drinks and appetizers, including beer from Alpha Michigan Brewing Company, will be available for purchase. Reservations are encouraged so food plans can be made accordingly. The presentation will take place in the museum’s Cultural Center to accommodate a crowd and allow for spaced seating.
Details are also in place for the museum’s History Happy Hour in August. On Aug. 27, Earthaven Museum owners and curators Mike and Ruth Reisch will share about the “10 Most Important Minerals Mined in the U.S.” and will bring some of their most impressive samples to show and tell.
The July event is sponsored by Peninsula Title Agency, The Miners State Bank and The Pasty Corner. To learn more and to register, call 906-265-2617 or email Erika@ironcountymuseum.org.
