The new year promises to bring changes with several exciting projects. In order to start these projects and to give our few docents a vacation, the museum will be closed weekends until March 2nd and 3rd. The office and library will remain open part time during the week for appointments and other business.
As the museum begins the birthday recognition of the internationally known photographer, Nancy Ford Cones, we are fortunate to have as presenter, Ren Egbert. Ren has spent years researching Nancy and her work with her husband James Cones and has created a power point presentation telling this amazing story of the Lady from Loveland. With assistance from Jenny Shives, our Cones expert and curator, some of our extensive prints and memorabilia will also be part of the program. A short business meeting will begin at 7:00, followed by election of the 2019-2021 Board of Trustees. Every two years, a nominating committee chooses a slate of volunteers for the next two-year term.
The first Lunch and Learn session for 2019 will be Wednesday, April 10; 11:30 - 2:00 in Bonaventure. The speaker will be local Civil War enthusiast Rick Roesel. He enjoys reading about battles, tactics, and personality profiles of the major characters of the war. He also is a collector of Civil War weaponry and its evolution. Reservation required; cost is $10 for members; $15 for non members. Send to Loveland Museum Center or call 683-5692 to register (you may pay at the door).
