Interim museum coordinator appointed

The Board of Directors of the Friends of the History Museum of East Otter Tail County in Perham received a notice of retirement from executive director Lina Belar in early November and officially accepted it, effective Dec. 19.

The board is very supportive of Lina's plans to write a book about ITOW.

The interim museums coordinator is Julie Listrom from Perham. The board is conducting a search for a curator/executive director.

The ITOW, In their Own Words, Veterans Museum and History Museum of East Otter Tail County will both be closed in January.

The ITOW Museum will be closed for renovations, though tours are available upon request. Meeting rooms and the White Elephant Thrift Store, located in the same building at 805 West Main, will remain open.
