If you know what this is great, otherwise check our Artifact of the Month in Spotlights to find out. One Clue: It is in the Reminisce Building.

      If you read our website every month, then a couple of months ago we said that because of our large turnouts for the first Sunday programs some had a hard time seeing and hearing everything.  Finally, good news!  The museum was just informed that a grant that we were waiting on was approved.  This grant along with specified donations will allow us to proceed with installing equipment that enables us to stream into an adjoining room. With two new televisions and a new sound system we will be able to seat an additional forty people.  Sorry, we were hoping to have this in place by August 3rd, but unfortunately it won’t be ready until the September 7th program.  Keep checking this site for further updates.
