Third Annual Mystery at the Museum

Help solve a mystery at the Lac qui Parle Museum.  Start with a supper of BBQ ribs and baby red potatoes at the VFW at5:30 p.m., then adjourn to the museum to help solve a troublesome mystery.

The museum curator is missing!  There are signs of a scuffle in the museum.  A note, written in the curator’s handwriting, is found on her desk which suggests she may have been kidnapped.  Why would she write her own ransom note?  Was she force to write it?

The evening ends with dessert and coffee, when prizes will be awarded to the most clever sleuths.

Tickets are $15.00, or $12.00 for museum members.  Tickets available at KLQP Radio in Madison, Tim’s Food Pride in Dawson, at the museum.

Supplemental funds applied for through Thrivent Financial Action Team.
