Purple martin program March 18 at History Center

SPONSORED POST. The “Joy of Purple Martins” will be the program topic Saturday, March 18, 10 a.m., at the Dassel History Center.
Dr. Tom Lyke, Hutchinson, and Warren Nelson, Dassel, will share their knowledge and love for purple martins. Nelson is also interested in building purple martin houses. Their interest lies in the entertainment that the birds provide and also the preservation of the species. “Purple martins need husbandry to survive,” Lyke said. “This area is a prime territory for purple martins.”
Dr. Lyke, now retired, has been a dentist in Hutchinson for 46 years. Nelson, who is also retired, is a Dassel native.
There is no admission charge.

Happy 139th Birthday Cokato open house Sunday

The Cokato Museum and Historical Society welcomes the public to its fourth Happy Birthday Cokato open house Sunday, March 19, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Cokato Museum. The Village of Cokato was officially incorporated March 9, 1878 . With a population of under 300 people surrounding the St. Paul and Pacific Railway station, the community certainly had humble beginnings. Now, 139 years later, we can look back at the story of not just the city of Cokato, but the surrounding area, and be proud of how well it has grown and thrived over the decades. The museum will be open from 1 to 4 p.m. so visitors can see the many improvements made to the gallery, check out how our current Escape Room is set up, and enjoy the “Lost Cokato” slide show seen at the recent Business Expo.
