As we head into March, we move into a very busy and exciting period for the Museum. First, it is Women’s History Month. Come learn about the distinguished ladies who have contributed to the establishment, growth and ongoing success of Lake County!
Next, we are honored to be hosting National History Day 2019 for the Lake County Schools. On March 2, students from all over the county will come to the museum to compete in a History fair. This year’s theme is ‘Triumph & Tragedy in History’. The students will have entries in categories such as essay, performance, display, websites & documentaries. The public is invited to view the entries from 1:00 – 2:00 and stay for the awards presentation.
March will also mark our third annual Museum by Moonlight event which helps to raise funds for current and future exhibits. Among our goals is to open a 5th Gallery which will feature an expanded Civil Rights exhibit and highlight the contributions of the many diverse peoples of Lake County.
With all of this, things certainly won’t be slowing down after March. In April, watch for our next Author’s & Artist’s Day and later, look for a new Historic Holidays chapter as we prepare for the Fourth of July!
