Response to the new Military Exhibit has been overwhelming. We had over 150 visitors on Wednesday for the open house and another 420 visitors Thursday through Saturday! That is almost 600 visitors in 4 days! It is great to have so many visitors!
My favorite part has been seeing people point at the photos and listening to the comments.
“Wasn’t he handsome?”
“I remember him. We went to school together.”
We have also been receiving more photos to add at our next update. I have 24 so far! Keep them coming and we’ll do another update soon.
Admission is “free will donation” all summer.
