Little Old School House program

Step back in time…write on slates, practice penmanship, study geography and arithmetic, and spell down at the District #63 One-Room School House at the Stevens County Fairgrounds! Students will “attend” school in the morning (we promise it will be fun!), then have a field day after lunch.  You will compete in races, play marbles, and participate in many other activities that country kids used to play at the end of a school year.  Students are invited to wear clothing from the old days, but please wear sneakers for the field day portion of the day.

PLEASE NOTE: A sack lunch and water bottle is needed for each student.  Register through Community Education online, or call them at 320-589-4394.

The Little Old School House is co-sponsored by Morris Area Community Education & Stevens County Historical Society.

6th Street Art Salon

Wednesday, July 31, 2019
6-9pm

The Stevens County Historical Society & Museum will host the 1st annual 6th Street Art Salon on July 31, 2019 from 6-9 p.m. at the museum.

Attendees will be able to peruse and purchase art directly from local artists, art fair style.

In addition to the mini art fair, the $15 entrance fee includes a card making workshop; a table for coloring, stitching, and conversation; appetizers by Stone’s Throw Café; yoga on the lawn led by Empowered Living Inc.; and a 25% discount on any one item in the museum gift shop.

There will also be a cash bar with cocktails, mocktails, beer, and wine by Stone’s Throw Café and chair massages by local therapists!

In 18th century France, a salon was an organized gathering in a private home, usually by prominent women, to exhibit art and discuss literature.  The 6th Street Art Salon in Morris is an opportunity to experience the creative talent of our area, from paintings to pottery to provisions, and to relax and pamper yourself.

Bring your friends and help support your local artisans.  Tickets available at the event.  Proceeds go toward future programming at the Stevens County Historical Society.
