Special Exhibit on the Morris School Free Games for building to be a part of museum exhibits Kids of All Ages

The Stevens County Historical Museum is a place to stop during the community festivities during Prairie Pioneer Days in Morris. A new exhibit marking the history of the Morris School Building and the memories created there will be opening. It is entitled: “Don’t Cry Because It is Over: Smile Because It Happened.” This quote from Dr. Seuss makes the ending stage of this building more of a time to reflect on the good times that happened over the decades. A big g er than ever “Horizontal Grandeur” National Prairie Art Show will be revealed at the Opening Rece ption on Thursday, July 11, 6:30- 8:30 p.m. Fifty-one prairie state artists of 70 pieces will be showcased at this art show now in its sixth year. Many

of the artists will attend the opening rece ption making it an excellent place to talk to the artists about their personal statements of their work. The art show has from the start been named after the essay by author Bill Holm called Horizontal Grandeur. His love of the prairie was well known by his speaking as well as his writings. The Historical Society got permission to promote this art show through his essay and name it after him when it was first begun. As the art pieces that are juried are arriving, it will be a spectacular show that will impress anyone with a love and appreciation of the prairie and of the mediums artists use to express themselves. The first public viewing of the Men and Women of the Land Hall of Honor

DVD stories and portraits will also be available during the celebration. The first six stories will premiere at a reception for nominees and families earlier in June and will be showing on the big screen TV during the open hours of the weekend. There are now 38 nominees with room for 50. The portrait wall is very distinguished and the addition of the stories as we complete them is truly an exhibit that covers all the decades of the Stevens County history and people who lived it and made pro g ress for the County. The Museum building itself is a destination visit. It is now 108 years old with the addition being eight years old. It is on the N at i o n a l Re g i s t e r o f Historic Places and also

received both a State of Minnesota Preservation Alliance and a National Award of Merit from the American Association of State and Local History for the addition and preservation of the historic portion of the building.

The Audubon Center of the North Woods will be presenting an exciting educational program featuring live native birds of prey such as: American Kestrel, Eastern Screech Owl, Red-tailed Hawk and Great Horned Owl and reptiles such as: Fox Snake, Bull Snake, and Painted Turtle. Come get a chance to observe, photograph, ask questions, and explore bio-facts about Minnesota birds of prey and reptiles. Skilly & Duf f with Annie O'Flynn is a popular regional trio specializing in Irish traditional songs. The group got together

when Bruce Kelly of Elbow Lake and Mikko Cowdery of Osakis discovered their mutual love for old Irish songs, many of which they had learned as children. They soon added Annie O’Flynn on piano, accordion and har monies to round out the trio. Skilly & Duff have been playing together for several years, and have played clubs, private par ties, fairs, weddings, country clubs, theatrical shows, festivals and concerts in both Minnesota and South Dakota. They have played in pubs in Ireland as well as the Maritime provinces of Canada.

During the ride, you will have the opportunity to see a bit of North America’s most endangered ecosystem, the tall grass prairie. In July, the prairie looks like a sea of grasses and wildflowers.

S i l e n t A u c t i o n : New this year, the Friends are hosting a silent auction with all proceeds going towards Prairie Extravaganza 2014. C e l eb r a t i n g 5 5 Ye a r s o f B i r d C o n s e r va t i o n It’s time to celebrate the success of the most important conservation program you’ve likely never heard of: the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Small Wetlands Program uses money from the sale of federal duck stamps to perma-

nently protect some of the most threatened and productive migratory bird habitat in the United States. Since its creation over 50 years ago, nearly 3 million acres of prairie pothole habitat have been protected forever across western Minnesota, the Dakotas, and parts of Iowa and Montana. Right here in Morris, our own local Fish and Wildlife Service of fice (the “wetlands office” to many, but properly called the Morris We t l a n d M a n a g e m e n t District) is part of this fantastic program to protect habitat to benefit both wildlife and people. The Mor ris Wetland Management District is responsible for 244 federally owned waterfowl production areas in eight counties. This protected land is part of the most important waterfowl habitat in North America, the prairie pothole region. Fifty four years ago, in 1958, Congress responded to the alarm over intensified wetland drainage by directing the Fish and Wildlife Service to permanently protect prairie wetlands and associated grasslands for the benefit of the American people. Today, the nearly 3 million acres protected so far provide habitat for waterfowl, grassland birds, and other wildlife, all while providing recreation, flood-control, and water quality benefits for people. Come celebrate 55 years of bird conservation during Prairie Pioneer Days events at the Mor ris We t l a n d M a n a g e m e n t District with wildlife

encounters, prairie wagon rides, live music entertainment, bird house construction, and gorgeous prairie wildflowers. The Mor ris Wetland Management District office is located three miles east of Pomme de Terre Park on County Road 10 ( t h e M i l l D a m Ro a d ) . Everyone is welcome to come out and enjoy the prairie. We have a 1.2 mile hiking trail starting and ending at the office which takes you around a prairie wetland. This hiking trail, together with our autotour road, is open sunrise

to sunset seven days a week. Our wildlife photography blind, located adjacent to the hiking trail, is o p e n ye a r- ro u n d f ro m dawn to dusk. The Friends of the Morris We t l a n d Management District, a non-profit community support group, will be supplying refreshments. They will also be sharing the g reat experiences they have had with the Wetland Office and the community. Come join us for a great, fun-filled afternoon on the Prairie!

‘Rock the Groundz’ returns for fifth year July 12-13 in Morris Ro ck t h e G ro u n d z – West Central Minnesota’s outdoor music and camping festival – is returning for Friday, July 12 and Saturday, July 13 with four great bands, two nights of camping and one large fireworks display.

Saturday’s lineup kicks off with the Twin Citiesbased group Six to Midnight, providing a set list with range from the lightest dance songs to the heaviest hard rock hits. “Aside from all the great things that come from writing and playing great original music, we all like

to go out, have fun, and entertain” says Jordan LaBorg, guitarist and songwriter. “Few things bring the excitement as being on stage and performing that one song; you know the one you hear on the radio all the time by that one band you can never remember the name of. It’s great to get out to the clubs and play everyone’s favorite hits.” 69 Cents performs for a fifth-straight year at Rock the Groundz – a distinction no other band can match. “It’s a pretty good feeling, Morris has been pretty good to us,” says Dave Wolters, guitarist and a founding member of 69 Cents. The group is excited to return to the main stage this year, starting where things left off from their wild performance in the campground last year. “We love outdoor shows. The energy is higher, the stages are bigger and everything is more polished.”

Headlining in 2013 is The Rock Godz to take the audience on an over-thetop,wildly fun trip through the best eras of rock and p o p m u s i c. T h e i r 8 0 s focused production (combined with classic and current rock/pop) creates an instant party scene where friends raise their glasses and sing along to their favorite songs – all night long! THE Rock Godz features music from all of your favorites, including Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Motley Cr ue, Jour ney, Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC, Po i s o n , P r i n c e, B r ya n A d a m s, L e d Z e p p e l i n , Theory of a Deadman, Quiet Riot, Buck Cherry, Steel Panther…and many more! The Morris Eagles is sponsoring the annual f i rewo rk s d i s p l ay o n Saturday at dusk, just prior to The Rock Godz taking the stage.

the Fairg rounds. Concertgoers will have the ultimate view of this annual gift from the Eagles to the Morris community. T h e f i rewo rk s a re launched courtesy of the Morris Fire Department. Vendors will be on site to sell a variety of food and beverages. The Mor ris
