Historical Society, United Methodist plan fundraiser

The Wadena County Historical Society has asked the Wadena United Methodist Church to join in with them in their yearly Old Fashioned Pie and Ice Cream Social fundraiser, which will raise money for the Methodist Church as well.

The groups will be serving on Wednesday, Aug. 17 from 4-7 p.m. at the Methodist Church, on the corner of 1st Street SE and Dayton Avenue.

A free-will donation will be collected.

A "Historical Notes - Songs of America's Heritage" will relive the days of the Old West. The event also includes artifacts from the Old West with displays, items and photography from the gold rush, pioneers, the Civil War, the cowboys and the homesteaders.

Those in attendance can watch "The Lone Hand" give Dutch oven cooking demonstrations. This presentation is a mixture of Dutch oven and Victorian cooking technique and recipes.
