The Museum hosted two high school reunions this summer, Lincoln High School 1962 and 1967. These reunions are always enjoyable because many of these classmates haven’t been to the Museum since it was the T.B. Scott Library. I particularly enjoy hearing about experiences of growing up in the south Wood County area during the 1950s and ’60s.
We probably get most visitors into the Museum through special events so please keep us in mind if you are interested in using our facility during when we are not regularly open.
Beginning in September, we begin an upgrade to our cranberry room exhibit and prepare for the third-annual Christmas Tree Walk, for which, last year, we had close to 1,000 visitors during the first two weekends of December. More information about this year’s Christmas Tree Walk will be available in future blog postings.
This is also a great time of year to recognize the efforts of Micky Erickson and Christine Griffith, leaders of the Wood County Master Gardener Volunteers who maintain the beautiful gardens at the Museum. This year, their efforts were recognized by the Yard and Garden Club of Wisconsin Rapids through a “Five Star Award.” Congratulations and thank you to all of the Master Gardener Volunteers who work so hard to make our grounds a showpiece for the community.
