You’re invited! A birthday bash to celebrate Johnsburg Historical Society’s big 40th birthday happens Saturday, August 31 at Tannery Pond Community Center. JHS will host an opening reception/birthday party with a new exhibit, “40 Years Celebrating 200 Years” at the Widlund Gallery of TPCC.
The exhibit will remain on display until September 24. Join the fun in the main lobby for the birthday party and exhibit premiere from 5 to 7 p.m.
This free family event will include make-your-own-sundaes, beverages, activities, games, prizes and music.
Like anyone entering a new decade of life, JHS has the opportunity to reflect on the past 40 years and to look ahead to a world of fast-changing technology. Artifacts from the JHS collection will be on display, photographs and documents will be exhibited, and visitors will be able to view a continuous presentation of a Living History interview.
With a respect for the past and an eye to the future, JHS honors the idea that “nothing remains unless it is remembered, recorded and preserved.”
