We are decorated for the holidays! Jane Schmiedeke has loaned her antique winter village houses and are displayed in the kitchen. Maxe and Terry Obermeyer have donated the wreath hanging in the Milliman Parlor as well as other beautiful decorations. The mannequins are dressed in their winter clothes. Great displays have been set up in every room.

Be sure to attend out Christmas Open House on Sunday, December 13, 2015. The Huron Valley Harmonizers will entertain from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. They serenaded us beautifully, several years ago. Refreshments will be served.

The Quilt Show held in September was a great success! Thirty-seven people loaned us 87 pieces for the exhibit. Seventy-two signed the guest book and six new exhibitors were added to the books, for future shows. Vera Sabastian and Arlene Measley were the winners of the beautiful wall hangings donated by Rita Sprague. THANK YOU Chair Sarah VanderMeulen and her committee.

Welcome to John Stewart and Louise Nagle, the two new members of the Museum Advisory Board.
