The Essex County History Museum is gearing up for their opening in May with new exhibits, but they need your help. They have received an unbelievable collection of over 600 “Land of Make Believe” historic items and Arto Monaco memorabilia. I’m sure many area families and tourists remember the Land of Make Believe Amusement Park that Arto Monaco created in 1954, with the idea of giving children the opportunity to let their imaginations soar. The park gave many a fun filled day, but unfortunately it was destroyed by a flood in 1979, with very little if anything remaining today, except the collection given to our museum. They need your help! The creation of their exhibit titled, “Greetings from the Adirondack’s: Mid-20th Century Tourism and Recreation” which includes this collection needs monetary donations. Please help them make it happen, to meet their goal of $2,500 by May 1. Any amount will be appreciated, contact 873-6466 or email email@example.com.
Another way to help the museum is to join them in celebrating “Women’s History Month” by attending a benefit and reception for the Essex County History Museum at the Whallonsburg Grange Hall on Friday, March 21, at 7 p.m. A delightful presentation of “Songs and Stories of Remarkable Adirondack Women” by singer/composer Peggy Lynn and author/performer Sandra Weber. For more details call 963-4170 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
