SCANDIA – Come join the Washington County Historical Society [WCHS] in kicking off the 2013 summer season with a 5K Run and Walk from the Hay Lake School Museum on May 4 at 9 a.m. The run is a fundraising and awareness-raising event for WCHS and the Hay Lake School Museum located at the corner of Olinda Trail and Old Marine Trail just a mile south of Scandia. Participants in the event will be given an event t-shirt as well as a chance to enjoy what is hoped to be a wonderful spring day in Northern Washington County.

The 5K Hay Lake Run will start at the Hay Lake School Museum and will loop around nearby Sand Lake before finishing back at the Hay Lake School Museum. The run will start at 9:00 AM, and after the race the Museum will remain open for free tours of the schoolhouse and the Erickson Log Home. Participants are encouraged to stick around after the race to look around the Museum and learn more about one-room school houses and their role in Washington County’s History.
