Since the COVID-19 hit Illinois, our museum has not had any events. But that does not mean we have not been busy!! Planning new displays, collecting old pictures, and planning a half year event schedule.
We will be opening on July 10th at noon to celebrate not only returning to normal, but Seattle Sutton’s upcoming 90th Birthday. Seattle will be hosting 51 family members during the Fun Days Events to help her celebrate this milestone!! We will be displaying Seattle’s wedding gown, which she de-signed and sewed herself, and all 3 daughters wore. The back room will be designated Seattle’s Life for this event. We won’t have any speakers at this event, but we hope it won’t disappoint.
The museum is trying something new to peak the community’s interest in our history. We will be submitting a small article describing a new exhibit or donation every month. So make sure to look for us in the Community monthly newsletters!!
As always, please remember that your generous donations are what help this small museum with our deep history to survive. So please consider donating to help us achieve our goal of preserving our history for years to come.
