Cheesecake fund-raiser to benefit local museum

Got a craving for cheesecake? If so, you're in luck.

The Becker County Historical Society is hosting a Spring Cheesecake Fundraiser.

Stop in at the museum from now until Friday, March 27, to place your order for a delicious cheesecake from Creamy Creations of Callaway.

Orders will be available for pickup at the Museum between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., April 7-9. A 9-inch cheesecake will serve 16 people. There are over 15 varieties to choose from, including key lime, Oreo, turtle, chocolate raspberry and more.

"We thought it would be something fitting for Easter," said museum manager Carrie Johnston of the reason for choosing cheesecake as the museum's fund-raising tool.

The fundraiser will benefit the Becker County Museum and its community programming, which includes things like the weekly Kids' Day held every Thursday in August; outreach programs at area schools, nursing homes, businesses and community organizations; museum tours by local students; and new exhibits like a soon-to-open 1950s display.

The 1950s display will serve as the backdrop for a March 19 meeting of the DL Young Professionals, who will have a "Soda Night" with authentic old-time drinks and a presentation on what downtown Detroit Lakes was like in the '50s.

For more information please stop into the Becker County Museum, 714 Summit Ave., or contact Carrie Johnston at 218-847-2938. The Becker County Museum, Research Library and Gift Shop are located next to the Historic Holmes Theater on Summit Avenue in Detroit Lakes. Admission is free. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
