Today I opened the museum early for one of our regular volunteers to help paint our deck.
It is wonderful to see the many regular volunteers who put in so much hard work – fixing things, gardening or helping with our collection. It shows that the museum is truly a community place.

Summer at the museum

Last night the museum was mentioned for Art at the Council.

There are many exciting things coming up in the next weeks.
We have are hosting a couple summer camps with Block 8 Academy and later in the summer with UME Academy.

In our part of the summer camps the kids will be “transported” back to 1915 and learn to be artists in the trenches.

August 19 our next 24 Hr trench will allow visitors to travel back in time.
