Plenty of museum events set for coming weeks
I hope everyone received a postcard regarding Cape River Heritage Museum's upcoming events. Fall hours are 1 to 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday. Be sure to visit the museum during Labor Day Weekend to find lots of bargains during our third annual tag sale scheduled 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days.
Make plans to attend a reception and book signing for Jerry Ford's book, "The Gordonville Grove: Stories of Tombstones, Tambourines and Tammany Hall." The event will be 5 to 7 p.m. Sept. 10. Cost of the book is $19, not the price that was listed on a previous postcard. I apologize for the error.
Learn about the life of the Native American family. Chief Paul White Eagle's discussion series is 11 a.m. Sept. 18.
On Sept. 21 the League of Women Voters is hosting a luncheon at the museum in celebration of the passage of the 19th Amendment. Everyone is invited. Call 334-0503 to let us know you are coming.
Sept. 24 and 25 is the opening of "Telling Stories Through Quilts" exhibit. Many local collectors and quilters are contributing to the exhibit running through December. Call 450-9415 to arrange a special group quilt tour this fall.
Bring your family downtown 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Oct. 4 and 5 for Heritage Days. Admittance is free to local historic attractions. Stop by 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 4 to try your hand at churning butter or making apple cider. Many other Early American household items will be showcased.
With all of these fun activities scheduled, you are sure to find some you will enjoy.
