Stop being bored on weekends and get smarter in the process.
The Carlton County Historical Society is recruiting members between ages 12 and 14 for the Junior Historian Club. Orientation is 1 p.m. today at the museum at 406 Cloquet Ave. in Cloquet.
Museum director Rachael Martin and youth board members Abbi Parenteau and Josh Dowell will be there to show you around. Bring a parent in order to sign up. The club includes monthly programs, newsletters, volunteer reward chances, plus an end-of-summer sleepover at the museum.
Today’s orientation is free and will feature a tour of exhibits, a look at the behind-the-scenes areas not open to the public, a short movie and information about triskaidekaphobia — the fear of the number 13.
Annual membership dues are $10 and include a book and unlimited admission to the museum. Call the museum at (218) 879-1938 for more information.
