Rain, Rain, Go away… come again any day but Memorial Day Monday also known as Eaton Day!
The usual Eaton Day (Memorial Day Monday) plans are firming up and some new ideas are going to be put together.
The “Day” that runs from 9 am until 3 pm is an opportunity for everyone to grab a pie or a gift or arummage sale item to bring home. This year we are adding more items to our “Museum Gift Shop” and more books to our vast new local history book selections.
A special addition to the fun this year will be a historic reproduction tin sale, used book sale and of course, our “what not” museum rummage sale. These little additions should prove to be fun to look through and any purchases will of course go to helping the museum fund.
This spring the Friends of the Old Town of the Old Town of Eaton Museum became an official 501 charity, this will allow the group to look for grants and also allow museum supporters to donate tax-deductible money to the cause. Few people realize the cost of keeping a little museum going!
This year’s Pie Sale will feature a number of locally grown fruits and a good variety of local favorites made by our local pie bakers and volunteers. So come out get a pie and enjoy a special piece of our local history. The Museum’s cookbooks that are for sale, list a number of local recipes handed down from local bakers of the past.
If you have relatives or friends from the area and need a Christmas Present…come down and pick something up in our gift area. We even have gifts for your cats and a coloring book for kids!! This year we will have our 2018 Historic Eaton Calendar available early.. it comes with an envelope that allows you to mail it out.
Our new Friends of the Old Town Museum Facebook and Internet pages will be up shortly and you can learn more on everything there! Right now you can go to our Old Town of Museum Facebook page! For information or to make a donation you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
