    Join us for Breakfast Club on February 12th with Dr. Jeff Mullins, Graduate History Program Coordinator at St. Cloud State University. Dr. Mullins will share his research of an 1846 racial murder trial involving the prosecution of William Freeman, who attacked a farmhouse and killed four members of the family inside. Though the case was both tragic and shocking, it seemed to be an isolated event. No one could have predicted the murder trial would become a stand-in for larger questions of social justice and a controversy of national importance involving race, social reform, free will and political partisanship.

    February is national heart month! Come to Breakfast Club early to receive a free blood pressure check from a Coborn's pharmacist.

    Breakfast Club is Wednesday, February 12th, at 9:00 a.m., with Dr. Jeff Mullins. This event is free to members, non-members $7. Breakfast Club is sponsored by Coborn's Pharmacy.
