"We're extremely excited to get the Museum reopened to the public," said Anne Zoellick museum board member, "it's been hard work reorganizing the museum basically from the ground up."
Board members began late last summer moving everything out of the main floor area in order to clean and redesign the exhibits.
A meeting was held a few weeks ago with volunteers who were involved with the Community Rooms exhibits on the 2nd floor of the museum. Rooms represented were the Eastland, Cisco, Ranger, Colony and Alameda/Cheaney Room.
A walk through of the rooms was done in preparation of the February 1 event and everyone was pleased to find most rooms were still in great shape. Most just needed a good dusting after the museum had been closed for several months.
Representatives of the following rooms are still needed: Olden, Morton Valley, Carbon, Long Branch, Gorman, Kokomo, Desdemona.
Board members and volunteers will continue working on the museum each Thursday evening at 6 p.m. and Saturdays beginning at 8 a.m. If you would like to help just drop by!
