New Hours & Days Open for Museum/Gift Shop
After a month-long closure for refurbishing and setting up of new displays, the museum will reopen to the public on Thursday February 9th, 2017. President George Partan announced that “In order to better accommodate visitors to the area, the museum’s hours of operation in 2017 will be Thursday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. plus most long holiday weekends”. These additional Mondays will include: President’s Day, Mon. Feb. 20th; Memorial Day, Mon. May 29th; both Monday July 3rd and Tuesday July 4th on Independence Day weekend and Labor Day, Monday September 4th, 2017.
Anyone interested in becoming a docent can contact the museum at (209)878-3015 or Helen Bauman (209)878-3483.
The commitment is for only 3 hours a month and in addition to that great feeling you get from knowing you are contributing to the community, you will get to know a great group of interesting fellow volunteers at the various gatherings scheduled throughout the year.
