Mark your calendars for December 7


Instead of our normal first Sunday program, everyone is invited to an open house from 1 to 4. The NVM board decided to have this open house to not only to say thank you for your support, but also to show off our new displays and explain what we are doing here at the museum. There will be board members in different areas to help anyone that has a question and talk about the area. The Christmas trees will be up by then, music will be playing and cookies, punch and coffee will be served from 2 to 4. We hope all can come and feel free to bring your children and grandchildren as there should be something for everyone.


See you December 7th

Don’t forget to thank our veterans
