Saturday in the Gallery

The Museum Gallery is open Saturday afternoons from noon ‘till three. This is a good time to visit since there are no parking problems. This coming Saturday (February 27) Nikki Castleberry will host the gallery. Take advantage and go one-on-one with Nikki about bats and rats, birds and mice. Tell the neighbors and bring the kiddies. Let’s show off our museum.
