The Rice County Historical Society’s 2017 Fall Banquet and Annual Meeting will be held on Thursday, October 19, at the Faribault Elks Club (131 Lyndale Avenue North) in Faribault. The banquet will begin with a social hour at 5:00; dinner will be served at 6:00. There will be a brief business meeting as required by our bylaws at 7:00, followed by the Carlander Family sharing the history of The State Bank of Faribault.
Throughout the last 98 years, the State Bank of Faribault, has remained an innovative community bank while serving and giving back to the Faribault Area in many ways. Their interest in preserving local history can be seen in their lobby, and their location in the exhibit of their Fleckenstein Brewing collection, the Faribault Engine, and the former Ochs Building, among others.
Please join us for an eventful evening. The meal will be catered by Nerstrand Meats & Catering and will include a whole hog roast, au gratin potatoes, cole slaw, baked beans with bacon, Bootsie’s homemade cherry sauce, rolls with butter, and a desert.
Tickets for this event are $17.50 for RCHS and Chapter members and $20.00 for non-members. Tickets can be purchased from any RCHS board members or at the Rice County Historical Society, located at 1814 NW 2nd Ave. in Faribault. Please reserve a ticket by Thursday, October 12th.
The Rice County Historical Society is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to discover, preserve and share the history of Rice County and the State of Minnesota.
