AMASA—Amasa’s 17th annual Heritage Day will be held on Monday, May 26, marking the summer opening of the museum.
All activities take place in the museum building on Pine Street or on the museum grounds. A concessions stand will open at 10 a.m. for bars and coffee.
After the Memorial Day ceremonies at the Hematite Cemetery, there will be a commemorative flag-raising at noon. Food provided will include hot dogs, brats, barbecue and cotton candy.
Vendors and crafts people are welcome to set up free of charge on blocked-off Pine Street. Music by Dennis Sandri, a native son, and other entertainers will be provided.
The North Country Cruisers from Crystal Falls will have their antique cars on display for the public to vote on. Kids’ games will be offered, along with a bouncy house and tours of the museum.
Raffle tickets for the drawing on July 4 will be available for purchase. In all, more than 35 prizes are available, thanks to donations from Iron County businesses and local crafts people. Tickets are available from Museum Board members, at the Horseshoe saloon or at Tall Pines, all in Amasa.
