We have had a busy winter! Remember how you hated to clean at home but found that washing dishes at a friend’s home was fun? On January 22 and 29, volunteers dusted, swept, scrubbed, vacuumed, polished, cleaned, washed, refolded, rearranged, and brushed the museum to a sparkling state. A huge “Thank You” to the 15 that participated. Our new exhibits are Kathryn Howard’s beautiful milk glass and Bill Nickels’ c. 1930, ‘40’s, 50’s toy soldiers in the Library. (Someone asked Bill how he kept the soldiers so long. Bill said “You just put them in a box in the attic and grow older!”) We rearranged and updated three cases in the Dining Room and three in the Kitchen. In the upstairs hall, a dozen cards of our buttons are displayed. Don’t miss the Toy Room. Four “children” are dressed and ready for spring! Lincoln Schools’ Second and Third Graders will tour in April. Welcome to New Docents, Betty Johnston and Louise Nagel. We still need guides for the weekends. If you have three hours once a month, call us at 734-482-4990. Save May 9, 2:00 to 4:00, for our second High Tea. Again we will have a great selection of sweet and savory treats. Reservations are due by May 1. Call 734-484-0080, $5 donation required. Hats and gloves are optional. We will have a few to loan for the party. Last year’s event was highly successful. Thank you Virginia.
