MARCH 2018

SPRING IS FINALLY HERE AND WE INVITE EVERYONE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE NICER WEATHER  TO COME AND VISIT THE MANY WONDERS OF OUR MUSEUM IN CALLAWAY.  WITH FOUR BUILDINGS TO EXPLORE, WE ARE CERTAIN THERE WILL BE POINTS OF INTEREST FOR EVERYONE OF EVERY AGE.

WE HAVE  IDEAS IN THE WORKS FOR NEW DISPLAYS, REARRANGING, ETC. IT ALL TAKES TIME AND VOLUNTEER HOURS, SO THERE IS ALMOST ALWAYS A 'WORK IN PROGRESS' GOING ON......EXCUSE THE MESS IF THERE IS ONE DURING YOUR VISIT. AND IF ANYONE OUT THERE IS INTERESTED IN VOLUTEERING AT OUR MUSEUM PLEASE GIVE US A CALL. WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEW MEMBERS, NEW IDEAS AND EXTRA HANDS.

WE PLAN TO UPDATE OUR VINTAGE PHONE DISPLAY SOON SO THE PHONES  AND  THE ORIGINAL CALLAWAY TELEPHONE SWITCHBOARD CAN ALL BE SHOWCASED MORE EFFECTIVELY. WITH GREATER ATTENTION DIRECTED TO THE SWITCHBOARD, IT WOULD ALSO APPLAUD THE DEDICATED SWITHBOARD OPERATORS WHO COULD SUCCESSFULLY PLUG ALL THE RIGHT CORDS INTO THE CORRECT PHONE JACKS SO CALLS COULD REACH THEIR INTENDED DESTINATION IN A TIMELY MANNER. .....KEEPING HISTORY 'ALIVE' IS OUR GOAL !!!

A FANTASTIC NEW ADDITION TO OUR ANNEX BUILDING IS A RESTORED GAS PUMP THAT DUANE (SWEDE) HENRY PROFESSIONALLY RESTORED AND  DONATED  TO OUR   MUSEUM.  IT IS AN AWESOME PIECE OF HISTORY AND WE ARE HONORED TO HAVE IT ON DISPLAY.

WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING NEW FOLKS VISITING OUR FACILITY THIS YEAR AND HOPEFULLY SEEING RETURN VISITORS AS WELL. CALL IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SCHEDULE A TOUR, AND IF YOU ARE JUST PASSING THROUGH THE AREA, PLEASE STOP IN.

HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON!!
