MUSEUM NOTES: May 28, 2019

As the month of May ends and our summer months begin, I want to thank our volunteers for their dedication and hard work. We had about 150 school children visit us in May, including kids from Shamrock, Wheeler and the Baker Elementary 4th Grade. I honestly do not know what I would do without Ilene Floyd and Jan’et Schaef this month. Ilene and her Native American presentation is consistently a kid favorite. Jan’et Schaef does a fantastic job at recreating her experience attending the Blue Ridge Schoolhouse for the kids. Ladies, y’all are awesome!

I also want to thank Coy and Colt Pittman for volunteering to help catalogue some of our collection. These young men are saving me and Elizabeth valuable time to focus on programs and events. Thank you boys!

Get ready! Page L. Steed is coming back on Wednesday, June 12th, 12-1pm. Her second luncheon presentation will focus taking photographs while hiking. She will provide tips on what to take and what to expect based upon her own experiences. This will be your last chance to see this exhibit, as she will start taking down her prints soon after. Lunch, tea and water will be provided. You don’t want to miss it!
