When you think of the different seasons of the year, “Mother Nature” really puts the most colors into the fall. Can the trees be more beautiful? After the summer we will welcome fall. Our museum displays have all been changed. Our large case has crystal and china from our own collection of which we are very proud. The kitchen display case showing past school years is for the younger generation. The glass top tables are Nancy and Virginia’s collections and are very interesting as they display what one got in premiums when you purchased “Rose Tea.” Also, the mannequins have all been dressed up for fall. Starting September 22, and running through October 13, the “Quilt Show” will be featured in the Museum. The display will be available for viewing during our regular museum hours. We have many new quilt makers in addition to our regular talented contributors. Rita Sprague has made a beautiful wall hanging called “Mist of Fall” for which we will take contributions in exchange for a chance to win this beautiful piece. This year’s donations will go toward renovations of the Dining Room. We look forward to this wonderful show. If you wish to have a guided group tour, contact Nancy Wheeler at 734-483-7749. The “Lost Ypsilanti” exhibit has featured some very interesting people who played important roles in the history of Ypsilanti. Thank you Virginia and Bob for this outstanding exhibit. We also thank Donna Carpenter and Diane Schick for their displays. If you have any interesting collections that would be appropriate for displaying in our Museum please contact me at 734-482-7081. It’s hard to believe but already we are beginning to plan for the “Holidays.” Fall days are so beautiful. Please enjoy them and come visit us at the Museum.
