    Dinehart Lunchbox Lectures Take a Turn Toward the Twenties

     

    The 2019-2020 Murray County Historical Society Dinehart Lunchbox Lecture Series will feature wide ranging topics, many relevant to discovering the 1920’s in Murray County, the SW Region, and Minnesota.  All lectures will be at NOON at the 4-H building on the Murray County Fairgrounds unless otherwise noted. Cost is $3.00 and MCHS MEMBERS FREE. Bring your lunch. We supply coffee, tea, or cocoa.

     

    The first lecture kicks off on Thursday, November 14 at noon with the story of one woman’s journey from a Chandler-Lake Wilson farm kid to Methodist minister to journalist for a small-town newspaper. Pastor Kathy Miller Brandt will tell stories of her journey and the people she has met along the way. She graduated from Southwest Minnesota State University and then received her Master’s in Divinity and in Christian education in Nashville, Tennessee. Ordained as a Methodist minister in 1985, Kathy went on to serve in churches throughout Minnesota and also spent 10 years as a nursing home chaplain. Kathy retired from the ministry in 2018 and began a new career working for the Westbrook Walnut Grove Sentinel-Tribune. She reports, “I’m having a blast!”

    Join us for an evening to unwind and connect before the madness of the holidays is upon us (because you know we get socked with 95% of holiday everything!)

    It seems we’re frantically running from here to there and everywhere and can’t get ahead. And in the crazy, daily grind, we tend to focus more on our family and less on ourselves. Paige Freeman and Tracy Hansen, providers at MCMC, will commiserate right along with you and answer some of the frequently asked questions other women have about their health and what to focus on, first. There’s a lot and it can be daunting!

    In the midst of juggling 101 things, we are usually making the calls for our family’s healthcare. And if you can get your husband to go to the doctor, you’re winning! Loretta Gervais, with Edward Jones, will share some advice on saving for your healthcare no matter what stage of life you’re in and how sticking to a plan lead can lead to riches – for your family’s health and your financial future.

    All who attend will receive one complimentary glass of wine, heavy appetizers and a complimentary wine glass from Painted Prairie. Grab your friends and make it a fun evening at Painted Prairie!

    RSVP HERE! SEATS LIMITED TO FIRST 50!
