It's been a long month since one of our founding members passed away. She did so many things around the museum that there are reminders of her everywhere. But she would not want us to tarry and wallow in sadness; she'd want us to keep going.
So we are getting on with the next display. It's called "Wee Ones," and it's all about babies and birth. We're seeking memorabilia from our community and hope to make it a good exhibition. We'd like to get started right away and have most of it up by September 1st. It will go on until March 1st 2014.
The community has already come forth with some good ideas - a 'guess the baby' contest and also a 'birthing advice' section.
Contact us if you having something you'd like to loan for this display. Anything from christening gowns to Plunket books would be wonderful but also looking for the unexpected too.
We're open Wednesdays and Sundays, 2pm-4pm, and by request. Your comments are always welcome!
