A CUP OF IRISH TEA
On March 11th the Historical Society celebrated with an Irish Tea. Everyone enjoyed the special treats prepared by museum member and shared stories about the Emerald Isle. Twenty four guests attended the event and requested we have more such gatherings in the future. Anyone with suggestions please contact us with your ideas.
TOURS AT THE WILLIAMS SITE
Schools have begun calling and requesting visits to the museum while they are on the Williams property. We usually have around 150 – 200 students within a three hour period. The dates the classrooms will be visiting will be posted as we receive them. Anyone wishing to help please contact the museum at 810-658-2286 or Debbie Koski at 810-653-9074.
We have recently received a chandelier donated by Anna Jean Konieczka on behalf of Richfield United Methodist Church. The church was built in 1879 at a cost of $2,000 and the chandelier hung in the building at that me and remained there until gas lighting was installed. Please come and see our latest treasure.
The museum had lost it’s internet connection back in December and was without it for almost four months. We are happy to report the problem has been solved and we are once again back in the 21st century.
