Email

Minnesota's 150th birthday party is taking shape.

It was 150 years ago last week that Congress took the first step to admitting Minnesota into the union. The state became the 32nd state on May 11, 1858.

The Sesquicentennial Commission is planning activities to last through May 11, 2008.

Gov. Tim Pawlenty announced there will be grants to help build local sesquicentennial projects and events. He included $2 million for that in his budget proposal.
