The exhibit will open for viewing on Saturday, April 8 at 2pm and be the featured exhibit for this upcoming season.

At 3pm there will be a show and tell program. If you have any items or stories you might have heard about WWI please bring them and share with others.

New Year’s Eve Celebration

New Year’s Eve found the Museum decorated and well-lit as it hosted a party to welcome 2017. As the clock made its way to midnight (which happened to be 8pm on Middleborough Museum Time) the attending membership enjoyed a variety of culinary delights prepared by the guests themselves. Sparkling conversation combined with good friends made the evening an enjoyable event.

After a toast to health and happiness in the New Year the assembled throng was witness to the ball (star) dropping into a field of blazing lights with a sign wishing everyone a “HAPPY NEW YEAR.”

Thanks to all who helped in making this event possible.
