Moga Madness 2012

A group of students came to the museum today and brought with them a willingness to do anything we needed to have done. What a gift and I took advantage of the offer!

We have over a dozen buildings and this often means that things need to be moved from one place to another. In planning exhibits, it is necessary and cost effective to use existing display cases. There is very little budgeting for ‘new’ in the small museum. Use and re-use is what we do. Our Church building is being used for a special Centennial Exhibit space this summer.

So the students and their teacher moved panels from one building to another and moved church pews out of the way.

Then furniture acquisitions were moved and outdoor picnic tables were re-located.
All in all, it was a lot of work in a short time.

I can’t thank them enough. Our young people make great volunteers for their community.

Teachers Help at Museum & Park

Local teachers, who are out on strike, spent yesterday morning cleaning museum buildings and doing work in the park and around the pond. This was a great way to do some community work and we are so grateful for it all.

It was also an opportunity for the new teachers to spend some time at the museum and park and see what we have to offer. Hopefully we can make more connections in the future.
