Date: Dec 17th, 2013

Relive local history by listening to stories of Circles Pines’ and Lexington’s past and seeing artifacts that were used in everyday life.  Join us at Circle Pines City Hall on Saturday, January 11th at 2:00 p.m. for a historical look at the area. Circle Pines City Hall is located at 200 Civic Heights Circle, near the Centennial Library in Circle Pines.

“As a resident and representative of this area, this is a great opportunity to learn more about how these communities came to be, and the trials and tribulations they had along the way,” said Anoka County Commissioner and Board Chair Rhonda Sivarajah, whose district includes Circle Pines and Lexington.

Learn about the history of Circle Pines and Lexington, as well as the eastern area of Blaine and parts of Centerville, at this one hour program. A slide show of photographs from the past will take guests on a visual tour through the area. Bring your stories from growing up in Circle Pines. This is backyard history at its best!

“History surrounds us,” said Library Board Vice President Melanie Keister, “Learn more about the history of the place where you live.”

This program is free and open to the public, but seating may be limited.  The History of Circle Pines and Lexington is sponsored by the Anoka County Library, presented by the    Anoka County Historical Society, and funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
