Use your music to help bring history to life!
You can have fun playing your guitar, banjo, harmonica, or other portable instrument to a very appreciative audience in a very lovely setting at some of our events. Our 150 year-old house with its shaded porch is the perfect place to indulge in a fantasy of living in a simper time as you play 19th century popular music. Suitable selections would include music by Stephen Foster, "When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again" (John H. Stevens faorite song), or a wealth of other songs we bet you can propose! We would especially like someone to play on May 28, "John H. Stevens Day" which commemorates the first act of historic preservation in the State of Minnesota.

Creative Council Member Sought!
We are a small, innovative non-profit organization with lots of flexibility in how we operate. We are looking for a few good entrepreneurial, creative people who want to do volunteer work but are tired of being assigned jobs such as folding and stuffing envelopes, or standing in doorways greeting visitors and passing out leaflets.
Join us and help to plan social and educational events, promotional programs, fund-raising, … you name it. Use skills you have been stifling in your current job, re-activate interests you had in your college days, or try something new in a low-key non-threatening atmosphere that can expand your resume!
For more information, call Lynette at 612 827-0138.
