Wedding Fashions Exhibit

It is with great enthusiasm that I announce the “Wedding Fashions Through the Ages: 1910-2000” Exhibit has been extended through the end of July. This is due to the high popularity and volume of guests visiting the museum since the exhibit’s opening. If you have not come by yet, I encourage you to come enjoy this exhibit as well as the artwork from “A Stroll Down Memory Wayne.”
Furthermore, I would love to meet all of you at some point so please stop by my office so I may introduce myself.
Thank you,
Rebekah Fitzgerald
