Yesterday the Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum conducted the Neighborhoods program for the 2nd Grade at Meadowlark Elementary School. This is just one of the fun pictures we took of them matching historic photographs with present-day photographs of their neighborhood and learning about public art.

The remodeling is moving forward as we speak. The Educator’s Office is painted and closets should be going in this week. Tape is on the museum store’s floor as we continue to work on what fixtures we will be adding to the store. Once the holidays are over remodeling pictures will start coming in earnest.

This is the last week to visit the museum before we close for the remodeling. Last day to shop in the museum store will also be this Friday. We still have some Christmas sales going on, including 25% off all books, Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum Press books are 30 – 50% off, and select T-shirts are 50% off. If you have a Christmas Button from the Chamber of Commerce, you will receive 15% off your store purchase. This is the last entry for the 2013 year so safe travels and Merry Christmas!
