Event description

Description

The Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County will be hosting a fundraising brunch on Sunday, October 29, 2017, from 11:00AM to 1:00PM at the Hjemkomst Center.

All proceeds will go toward supporting Illuminating the Word: The Saint John's Bible, our major exhibition of the year. The exhibition is, in fact, our biggest traveling exhibition ever, and it features 68 original pages of Saint John's University and Abbey's gorgeous The Saint John's Bible, as well as the tools and art materials used to create it, and text and photo panels.

The theme of the brunch is "Foods of the Bible" and Rex Cafe chef Kelly Wambach has hit his stride exploring those very possibilities in two fundraising dinners earlier this year. Visitors can expect some of the usual breakfast fare, namely eggs and breads, but with a Mediterranean and Middle Eastern focus: pita, olives, dates, apricots, lamb, fish, etc.

As a fundraiser for Illuminating the Word: The Saint John's Bible, we will introduce you to both the Bible and the exhibition, and additional donations are greatly appreciated. However, you are welcome to join us and learn about this exciting community event for $25. Tickets can be reserved both online here or by contacting HCSCC Administrative Assistant Lynelle Martin at (218) 299-5511, ext. 6739.
