“Went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends, a chance to share old memories and play our songs again…” -Ricky Nelson

Join us for an evening of fun to celebrate Bruce Olson’s retirement. Bruce Olson is one of the original founders and the first and only Executive Director of the Legacy of the Lakes Museum.

This is a community event to celebrate the completion of the Legacy of the Lakes campus. Bruce has been a visionary force, providing the spark, enthusiasm and leadership to transform a start-up product into a respected, vibrant museum, campus, gardens, education and event center.

Dinner served 5:30 – 7:30 pm
Music from 7:00 – 9:00 pm

Tickets are $40.00 per person. Call or stop by the museum to purchase. Limited number of tickets available, so get yours early!
