Rachael Martin stepped up to the 100 year old desk in the museum to present a program about the Carlton County Historical Society. After finding out that 5 people were here for the first time today, she also learned that 2 people had been introduced to the museum in the past by coming to a Rotary lunch. 
Program: Russ Smith introduced Kelly Zink, Director of the Cloquet Area Chamber of Commerce. She handed out the 2016 Year in Review for the chamber, and highlighted the activities and accomplishments from last year.
