Letter - Fun evening, good causeA belated thank you to staff, volunteers and patrons for this year’s “A Night at the Runestone Museum” (so specifically named as to not conflict with the movie title).
To the editor:
A belated thank you to staff, volunteers and patrons for this year’s “A Night at the Runestone Museum” (so specifically named as to not conflict with the movie title).
This was the fourth year for this event, which provides an opportunity for the locals to get out of the house in the dead of winter, to meet and converse with folks they haven’t seen since the 18th hole in September, and to enjoy a little local history. And, of course, most importantly, it’s a fundraiser for the museum.
This year’s event honored Scott Wolter, whose book, The Hooked X, and participation in the History Channel’s documentary, “The Holy Grail in America,” has made the strongest case yet for the authenticity of the Runestone. That issue led to some interesting “discussions” over the course of the evening. This “re-discovery” of the Runestone is certainly bringing a new notoriety to our area.
And we would also like to thank the various vendors over the years that have contributed delicious and assorted hors d’oeuvres for the event. This year’s participants were Arrowwood Resort and Conference Center, Bellas on Broadway, and Rudy’s Redeye Grill. They all did a terrific job, making it a fun evening for a good cause.
