Outing to Bakken Library / Museum in Minneapolis

Jun 21st, 2017

Come and join our residents for an outing to an iconic Minneapolis destination; The Bakken Library and Museum!  Earl Bakken, the first president of Medtronic, was an electric tinkerer. Being inspired by a childhood cinematic experience of watching Lon Cheney as Frankenstein, (at the legendary Heights Theatre in Columbia Heights), Earl followed his dreams to use electricity to benefit the human body.  Years later, he invented the first pacemaker!  Today, his company Medtronic, is a leader in the pacemaker production industry! Come check out this great gem situation on the shores of Lake Calhoun!
