Historical society meets

The Cokato Historical Society will host its annual meeting Thursday, Feb. 14, at 7 p.m. in the Centennial Room of the library/museum building, 175-4th St. W., downtown Cokato. A number of items will be on the agenda for the evening. Following a short business meeting, there will be information about the upcoming Minnesota Sesquicentennial celelbration, followed by a presentation by Dean Urdhal, author of the new book, Uprising, a fictional tale of events during the Dakota Conflict, one of the darker periods of this state's history. Signed copies of the book will be available for after the presentation. This meeting is open to the public; you do not have to be an historical society member to attend (though we will ask for your patience during the business portion of the meeting). For more information, call (320) 286-2427, or go to www.cokato.mn.us/cmhs/.
