Just for review here are the details…
Annual Membership Meeting

Potluck Lunch at 12:00 p.m. : please bring a salad or side to share with your fellow members. The Museum will provide the main dish, dessert and drinks.
Meeting at 1:00 p.m. till around 3ish
Visiting with Virgil White a few weeks ago we were talking about past Annual Meetings and at one meeting members brought in their baby pictures and had fun guessing who was who. We are encouraging member to send in a scanned copy of your baby photo so that we can create some baby photo boards. Please send in your photo to Megan at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 16th. Megan will be the only one who will know who’s who.
Prior to the start of the Annual Meeting we will be holding a Flower Fields volunteer gathering at 9:00 a.m. inside the Assembly Building. Please consider coming to learn about the Flower Fields and how this program helps the Museum.
Museum Office updates… I am excited to introduce Ms. Chantal as our new events assistant. Chantal will be assisting with booking the grounds for rentals and helping managing logistics of events. We are currently still searching for a new Curator but we should have news by the next issue of the Ignitor.
Grounds wise we had a couple days of big rain which caused heavy mud around the grounds. A week later we are still trying to dry out some areas. We have also started some cleanup projects to make room for some small equipment displays and much needed seating areas around the grounds. We do need some more volunteers to help us with some beatification projects. We will be having a work party February 2nd & 3rd to freshen up some paint, clean up some planter areas and plant some new ones. If you are able to come out and give us a hand please email us or call us in the office to put your name on the work party list. The Museum will provide lunch for the volunteers who participate in the work crew.
Our first upcoming event for 2019 will be the Table Top Antique & Collectible Auction on Saturday, January 26. If you have anything for auction we will start setting up as soon as we clean up from the Annual Meeting on the 19th. (There will also be another Table Top Auction in February on February 23).
If you are not currently signed up to receive our eCalendar I encourage you to do so that you can receive additional information on Museum Member events. If you have any questions on upcoming events or ideas please feel free to reach out to me. I wish you all a Happy Holiday Season and look forward to seeing you in the new year!
