Summer officially kicks off in just two days and what better way to start things off than to attend the Marias Museum’s Annual Summer Open House and Ice Cream Social on Tuesday, June 25. The fun will get underway at 6 p.m. at the Marias Museum Annex on 12th Ave. N. 

The museum continues to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, featuring displays and stories from that time and of Montana’s involvement in the war. Montana author, Ken Robison, will be a guest speaker at this year’s social, sharing stories of the people who settled the state of Montana and served their country.

Robison is a retired Navy Captain who has dedicated his time and talent to preserving Montana’s history. He has a particular interest in telling the stories of those who may be traditionally overlooked or forgotten, making it a point to discover and reveal Montana’s hidden past. His extraordinary stories have earned him acclaim as both an author and respected historian, receiving the Heritage Keeper Award from the Montana Historical Society in 2010.

Set a reminder for 6 p.m., Tuesday, June 25, and invite your family and friends to join you at this great community event. The history shared through Robison and the fantastic displays offered by the museum are something you won’t want to miss! Ice cream, beverages and socializing with the community, hello summer!
