Summer 2023 was, by all accounts, a stand-out summer! Attendance at the Museum was at an all-time high with museum goers praising the exhibits and the depth of the information of Three Lakes history. One family, after touring the Museum claimed it to be "an incredible hidden gem and a must see for everyone who loves Three Lakes!"
As always, our Concerts in the Park series along with the new museum Farm Stand served as wonderful ways to promote the Museum and encourage more folks to come take a tour.
At Concerts in the Park, a very special thank you to the concert goers who very generously contributed when we passed the hat, and to the Three Lakes Community Fund for a mini-grant to help underwrite the cost of advertising the concerts. Plus thank you to the Three Lakes Park & Rec team who made sure we had picnic tables for our summer diners. We look forward to a great 2024 summer line-up and even more tasty food trucks.
The Farm Stand at the Museum every Friday & Saturday was a great success. It was an awesome way for us to promote the Museum and brought lots of people to the museum grounds which encouraged visits and interest. Thanks to everyone who came to the farm stand, we sold over 5000 ears of corn from Penney and loads of fresh-picked berries from Clearwater Farm. Look for more farm stand news in the future!

A big thank you to the Lions Club who graciously approved a 50/50 raffle at the 4th of July parade to benefit the Historical Society & Museum. It was a terrific fundraiser, netting us almost $2000 and the lucky winner the same! Look for us at the parade next year when we hope to top this year's figure. And thank you toall the volunteers who sold tickets, counted money and made the beautiful float that announced the winning ticket and the prize amount! Thanks again for everyone's support of the Historical Society & Museum.
