Friday night, before the Full Monty or Wildcat Hockey, come to the Beaumier Center for the opening of the new exhibit, "The 51st State?" Free pasties, cheese curds, veggies and other refreshments. 6 p.m. in the Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center.
How and why did the Upper Peninsula become part of Michigan? Did it ever try to be its own state? Will it ever become one? These are just a few questions to be discussed in the Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center’s new exhibition, “The 51st State?” The exhibition will open with a public reception at 6 p.m. on Friday, October 11. Yooper hors d’oeuvres will be served along with other refreshments. If you going to the opening of “The Full Monty” at Forest Roberts Theatre, stop over before the show. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. The exhibit will be on display through March 28.
