MCHS Dine Month Fundraisers

February 23, 2017
Local Restaurants Offer Promotions to Help Preserve Local History
 
The Manitowoc County Historical Society and local restaurants have teamed up in March to raise money and awareness for our mission to bring the stories of our past to life at MCHS' Pinecrest Historical Village.
 
On each Thursday in March, one restaurant will pair with MCHS to donate a portion of that day's proceeds.
 
Participating restaurants include:

March 2: Port Sandy Bay, Two Rivers - from 4 to 9 p.m.

March 9: Panda Express, Manitowoc - from noon to 8 p.m. Please present the Panda Express voucher, available through MCHS.

March 16: Time Out Sports Bar and Grill, Manitowoc  - from 4 to 10 p.m.

March 23: A & W, Manitowoc - from 4 to 8 p.m.

March 30: Wendy's, Manitowoc - from 10 a.m. to midnight for a special local history night. You can also visit Wendy's anytime between March 1 through March 31 and a portion of the proceeds from your order will support MCHS. All you need to do is present the voucher, which is available through MCHS.
 
Vouchers for Panda Express and Wendy’s can be found on the Manitowoc County Historical Society’s website at https://www.manitowoccountyhistory.org/dineout or at the Manitowoc County Historical Society museum campus at 924 Pinecrest Road, Manitowoc.
 
“We are so appreciative of our local restaurants and their efforts to help us raise funds to support our mission to preserve and share our local history,” said Amy Meyer, Manitowoc County Historical Society Executive Director.
 
Funds raised throughout the March Dine Month Promotion will assist the Manitowoc County Historical Society with its operations and educational programs. The Manitowoc County Historical Society is a private non-profit organization, completely funded by membership dues, tours, fundraising events, and donations.

About the Manitowoc County Historical Society
Nestled in the scenic rolling Ice Age Kettle Moraine countryside of Eastern Wisconsin, the Manitowoc County Historical Society is a museum of living history. This 60-acre interpretive museum of local history features a Welcome Center with local history exhibits and research services and the outdoor Pinecrest Historical Village - a collection of over 25 historic buildings with period furnishings from Manitowoc County's early settlers. 
 
Pinecrest Historical Village began in 1970 with a land donation from the Hugo and Eleanor Vetting family.  The Village has grown to represent a reproduction of a small Wisconsin community during the early 1900s. The buildings form the commercial, social, and political core of a town and they represent several architectural styles of Wisconsin's history. The furnishings, items, and tools in the various buildings used by the Pinecrest Village interpreters are either original pieces or carefully researched reproductions.
