Work is continuing at the museum to get ready for our regular summer season! We anticipate regular hours beginning in early May. If you are looking for a fun way to spend some time on Monday mornings (and some Thursday mornings), join our group of incredible and dedicated volunteers to help create this year’s exhibits. We meet at 9 AM on Mondays, and you can stay until noon or stay for an hour, whatever your schedule allows. There are plenty of opportunities for various abilities and interests, as well as coffee and treats. If you’d like to learn more about this or other volunteer opportunities please contact Sherry Sheffler or Emily Nelson.

Can you help us expand our collection of local history photographs and add to our exhibits this year? We are looking for FFA members’ photos from their years in FFA. Original photos will be scanned to create digital copies and returned to their owners. We’re also looking for any photos you might have from beauty salons and barber shops here in town—maybe a “first haircut” photo or one of a beautician/stylist or barber at work, or the inside of the salon or barber shop. In addition, we could use photos of our community parks, the ball diamonds, and the pool over the years.

The Museum Board is working to develop a calendar of events and programs that we are excited to share with you as soon as possible. Our goal is to include some favorite events from past years and some new events and programs. Information will be available on Facebook, our updated website, and in the newspaper.
