She adds that the event will include the first performance at the Center.  "Glenn Henriksen will be our featured entertainment.  He will be playing outdoors before the program, and then he will move to the inside and he will be the first performer on stage.  While the tours are going on, Glenn will be playing the Steinway that we have on our stage."

The Dedication and Ribbon Cutting will begin at 5 o'clock Thursday on the Estherville Campus.
