The Pope County Historical Society has announced its annual Christmas Open House will be held Saturday December 11th from 1-4:00 p.m. Once again this year, there will be a silent auction. Baskets will be set up throughout the museum. Funds raised will support the mission of the Historical Society to foster among people an awareness of Pope County history so that they can draw strength and perspective from the past and find purpose for the future.
You can be a part of this year’s fun event by assembling your own basket or contributing an item of gift certificate to fill a basket assembled by museum volunteers. Cash donations are also accepted. Items can be brought to the museum during museum hours Tuesday – Saturday 10-5 or can be picked up at your location by request.
Bidding on items will begin Tuesday, December 7 at 10:00 a.m. and end at the Open House on Saturday, December 11 at 4:00. For more information, call the Pope County Museum at 634-3293.
