......... .......... PAGE 5 March 10, 2016 By Mary Knaus and Iayne Harff We had the opportunity to meet with Kevin "Wally" Olson at his business, Hayloft Bar & Grill in Luxemburg. Although Wally has never owned a bar, he has had plenty of experience as a cook, bartender and bouncer over the years. Wally has cleaned, painted, and updated the bar with new fur- nishings and accessories. He did say preparations to open have been a little overwhelming with so many details to finalize before his opening Tuesday, March 8. When asked what brought him to Luxemburg, Wally said he found the bar on Craig's List. He decided to keep the name Hayloft because it's an established name that local residents are familiar with. In addition to the genuine Broaster Chicken the Hayloft was famous for in the past, Wally will serve burgers, wraps, salads, homemade soups, and appetizers. The kitchen will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m.-9 p.m., and 11 a.m.-10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. The bar will be open After many busy weeks of preparation Kevin "Wally" Olson will open the new and improved Hayloft Bar & Grill in Luxemburg this week. Celebrate Cokato's birthday until midnight on Sunday through Thursday and until 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday. A Hayloft website and Facebook page will be coming (some of those many details to attend to). Wally is planning a grand opening for later this spring or early summer.

The residents of this young settlement overwhelmingly chose to incorpo- rate, and the Village of Cokato was born. The population at the time was fewer than 300 people. With a rail station, hotels, grain elevators, and other businesses that served the people of the surrounding townships, the new community was poised to grow and thrive. And it certainly did just that. The open house is free and the public is welcome. Stop by to see the many updates we have made to the museum, including our popular Escape Room, along with a fun slide show about railroading history, and one of our new video display monitors in the gallery.
