As the Gallery ends its 2013 season, we are happy to report that 2013 was a very exciting and a successful season. Many school children came to learn the past history of the people and area in which they live. There were visitors from 19 states and three foreign countries and more than 500 walk-in visitors. Several visitors came to find their family roots in the area and with the convenience of the new reading room and family information History Director Darlene Kallis has established, these visitors were able to find their history and families, while others enjoyed seeing familiar faces and items with which they grew up. The Annual Appreciation Tea sparked conversations of yet more ideas and activities for the upcoming 2014 season. Much is being planned for next year, such as monthly cultural activities, visits with artists, and new learning experiences.

As we close the doors on 2013, we are looking for new board members. This board work requires little of its participant other than the sharing of ideas and fun times. There are no membership dues, no hard work is required, just meeting once a month, usually for dinner at the Pheasant Café and sharing ideas. The year term is not really a year. We start meeting from April and go to October. Hosting work, is simply giving your time once a month for three hours at the museum. Do not be shy. Join us.
