The Isanti County Historical Society is hosting a pancake breakfast in conjunction with the Cambridge Chamber Business Expo on Saturday, Oct. 22 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Cambridge Armed Forces Reserve & Community Center. Why not let ICHS board members, volunteers and their friends start your day with pancakes, sausage, beverages and great conversation.
If you will recall, the Isanti County Historical Society was destroyed by an arsonist on July 8. The past 12 weeks have been spent setting up a temporary office, drying and salvaging documents, and cleaning up the Heritage Center site—all in anticipation of starting anew in 2012. Proceeds of the pancake breakfast will enable the Historical Society to meet expenses that have arisen as a result of the fire.
“Not only did we lose our Heritage Center and county’s history.” said Director Kathy McCully, “but we also lost our ability to generate revenue from building rental.”
Tickets for the breakfast will be available at the door. Everyone is welcome. In the event you cannot attend and you want to support ICHS, donations can be made by mail, at our website, or directly at Cambridge State Bank. For all other inquiries, visit www.ichs.ws, call 763-689-4229, email at [email protected] or drop a letter at 1700 E. Rum River Drive S., Suite K, Cambridge, MN 55008. They are open by appointment only at this time.
