The Museum is seeking on developing an extensive exhibit on the races, drawing from memorabilia local residents loan to the museum officials. Those who either participated in the races or have photos or memorabilia are asked to contact museum director Steve Parisi at 623-2207 or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. The exhibit is scheduled to open in February.
The museum is located in the VFW Building at 3754 Main St. and it is open Wednesdays through Dec. 18 and Sundays from 1-4 p.m. From January through April, the museum is open on Sundays only. Admission is free.
Available now at the museum are the 2011 Warrensburgh Historical Calendars as well as various books on local history, items that Parisi said make very thoughtful and appropriate gifts for history buffs. A purchase order form is on the Society's website at: www.whs12885.org.
