It’s hard to believe that we have two weeks left to prepare for the opening of Hometown Teams. We are working fast and furious.

The exhibit will arrive next Tuesday, November 20th. We will need a few able bodied men to help unload crates. If you’re interested, give us a call at 323-6548. It should unload pretty quickly, so we won’t take up much of your time.

Due to football playoffs, the opening date has been changed, imagine that! Monday, November 26th museum doors will open at 5:00, with festivities beginning at 5:30. I realize this time of the years gets crazy with everything going on in our community; we do hope you get a chance to come by at some point for the evening. Concession stand style food will be served, come hungry.

Also planned are brown bag lunches the first three Wednesdays in December. There will be a brief program, with plenty of time to go through the exhibit. Bring your lunch and join us. Speakers will be finalized in the next few days; we will get that information out to you very soon.

Along with the exhibit, a photography contest is planned, this is for students only.

Snap photos of your favorite event, showing the many sides of sports and how communities are drawn together. Prints need to be 8 x 10, please have photos at the museum no later than Friday, November 30th. We will provide the frames.

Visitors will have a chance to vote for their favorite.

This exhibit is very large and will be time consuming as we get it up and going. To make things easier on us, the museum will be closed all of next week. If you need to drop something off or have questions, give us a call and we will be happy to assist you.
