The North Chisago Historical Society had their annual fundraising Christmas Tea on Dec. 19 at the Rush City Community Center.

It was the largest tea they had ever had and was attended by 83 people.

Five Rush City High School National Honor students helped serve green salad with cranberries, chicken salad in croissants from County Market in North Branch, Eichten cheese in Center City and red grapes plus fabulous Christmas cookies and dessert.

Jon Ekstrom performed beautiful holiday music and both Santa and his elf produced lots of laughs and fun especially when they handed out many large door prices from local merchants.

The Museum is located 350 S. Eliot Ave., Rush City, and includes artifacts from Rush City, North Branch, Harris, Stark, Nessel, Rushseba and Kost.

The museum will be closed for the winter but will be open again on Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., starting April through December.
