Participants melt a small piece of tin and cast the liquid into a pail of cold water where it forms unique shapes. Tradition holds that those shapes will "foretell" what your upcoming year will entail. Join us by ringing in the New Year with this fun, relaxing, and informative get-together. We'll provide the refreshments, you provide the fellowship. For more information, please call the Cokato Museum at (320) 286-2427, or visit our web site at Tim Ellis, Owner US on facebook, too!
