Glensheen Collections Manager, Milissa Brooks Ojibway, will showcase various artifacts not usually seen by the public from the Glensheen collection.

As one of the individuals most familiar with the complete Glensheen collection, Milissa pulls out the best for this once a year event!

The event begins with Milissa presenting the artifacts and any Congdon tales the it carries. Guests will have the opportunity to ask questions and get up close with these rarely-seen artifacts.

Junket’s November Reuse Drive: Musical Keyboards
Nov 26 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

On Sunday, November 26, we’re collecting keyboards of all kinds to benefit Urban Ventures: Music Academy.

Urban Ventures Music Academy provides education and opportunities to the youth of South Minneapolis through group instruction, one-on-one mentorship, and state-of-the-art recording studio experiences.

Below is a list of the most helpful items you can donate. Urban Ventures will also have a representative at the shop between 1-4P to accept your items, talk about the organization’s programs, and answer your questions.

Items you can donate:
Yamaha, Casio, Radio Shack (Concertmate) or Kawai keyboards of any size key or number of keys. Ukuleles will also be accepted.

Because of the broad range of donation quality and the intention that these efforts produce genuine benefit for the recipient organizations, we actively encourage participants to respectfully decline specific items that may not be a fit. Should this happen with something you’ve brought, your pals at Junket will do our best to help you identify the next best solution.

The purpose of Junket’s monthly Reuse Drives is to help our community members incrementally declutter — while helping their unneeded stuff get into the hands of others who would find it legitimately helpful.
