Pioneer Museum will open its second exhibit on September 18. Pat Vallone, Exhibit Chairman, announced the theme will be “Then and Now,” relating household items of the mid-1800s and early 1900s to present-day items with descriptive stories and demonstrations.
An auction of antique items will be combined with musical entertainment and story telling. Further details will be announced by Rebecca Howerton, Chairman of Entertainment for the event.
All of the friends of the Museum who have antique items to donate for the auction can contact Chairman Nell Krueger at 833-5774 to arrange for pick-up of the items. All proceeds will be used for operation of the Museum.
Food Chairman Linda Howard is planning some very special treats and Dennis Moore will have a display of antique transportation vehicles; a few lucky bidders may even get a special ride.
Save the date, and further details will be announced as planning progresses. In the meantime, if you have not visited the Museum to enjoy the “home of the 1800s,” please don’t miss the opportunity to do so before it is changed.
Further details will be shared as planning proceeds and we encourage you to share this information with friends so all can enjoy another great Museum Evening.
The museum is located at 418 Pecan Street in Blanco and is open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm. We are seeking volunteers to assist in manning the museum during these hours during the month; even if a volunteer could only work one day during the month would be a great help. The Blanco Pioneer Museum will also be used for conducting Oral History interviews during the week days. If you would like to volunteer for assisting with these interviews, please contact the Blanco Library.
