Local members of the Minnesota Historical Society gathered at the Mille Lacs Indian Museum on August 23 to meet Kent Whitworth, the new director and chief executive officer (bottom, center). Site Manager Travis Zimmerman introduced Whitworth, who talked about his family history in Minnesota and the important partnerships between MNHS, its members, and local historical societies. Members were treated to free admission, a light dinner, and tours of the museum. Band member Max Blake entertained guests with his flutes.
