The 2015 Convention Committe invites you to join your fellow MRHS members for what promises to be a very special weekend at Larsmont cottages located about 6 miles south of Two Harbors, Minnesota along the beautiful shores of Lake Superior. The dates for this year's convention will be Octover 23-25.
This year's convention will be a bit more laid back to enjoy the beautiful surroundings that we will be in. We are still finalizing a couple of things but we will definitely have an enjoyable weekend planned for you. Remember, we can only accommodate 50 people total for this convention! BOOK NOW!
Special Request: We are asking that attendees bring about a dozen photos and or slides that we can share with everyone. Friday night we will be demostrating how we have been scanning your Archives. We are going to scan everyone's images and then share them on Saturday with everyone. Don't worry, you will get your originals back on Friday night as the process takes only a few seconds for each image.
Itinerary: We have a full itinerary listed so you can plan your weekend accordingly. The RDC ride down to Duluth for lunch and then back up to Two Harbors will be one of the big highlights of this year's convention. Because of the time of the year, you will be able to see things you normally wouldn't be able to during the Summer months. We will be opening up the Archives at the Lake County Museum at the Two Harbors Depot. We will have items out from our Archives that you have never seen before. Just being able to see some of the things we are putting out will be worth the trip by itself! Out annual meeting will be held Sunday morning at Larsmont Cottages.
Special Surprises: This year's convention is going to offer a couple of really unique give away items just for attending.
A reminder that due to RDC and food commitments we cannot honor full refunds if cancelling within fourteen days of the convention.
