The museum has quite a few events on the calendar, please be sure to plan on attending.
Saturday, February 25 is the fourth annual Snowflake Luncheon. This event if not just for the ladies! Chris Delbridge will be the entertainment. The catered luncheon is served on the museum's snowflake china. There are a few tickets left which can be purchased at Princeville State Bank and the museum. This is a fun event that helps to support the museum so call a friend and plan on attending.
Wednesay, March 14 is the next Community Coffee at the museum from 8:00 am to 10:30. We serve coffee, tea, donuts and home baked goodies. This is a popular event and you never know who will be there. It is fun to sit and visit with friends and neighbors. During the coffee, we usually bring out some old pictures and/or artifacts and usually get some great stories from our residents about the items.
This year is the celebration of the 175th anniversary of the Village of Princeville. The museum is collecting family favorite recipes to publish a cookbook in honor of the Semidemiseptcentennial Anniversary. Recipe forms are available at the museum, Lillie M. Evans Library and Village Hall. Recipe submissions are due by April 1 at those locations. Please send in your family's favorite recipes. This is a great way to honor your ancestors by sumbitting a recipe in their memory.
In May, the museum will be hosting the annual garage sale fundraiser. Doing some spring cleaning? The museum is taking donations now for the garage sale. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and will provide a receipt for your donation just like Goodwill and Salvation Army. Please consider supporting the museum with your cast offs. If you have an item too big to deliver, please call and we can make arrangements for a pick up.
Lastly, we are planning a beer and wine tasting in April. In the past, we have done this event in February. We will send out more information as soon as the details are finalized.
As always, we are looking for volunteers. Whether you can help weekly, monthly or occasionally, we rely on volunteers. Our volunteers help with artifacts, clerical work,event planning, event set up and much more. Please call the museum and let us know when you can help.
