WHAT'S AHEAD IN 2018
Museum volunteers have been busy working on new exhibits, refreshing our favorite attractions and planning plenty of happenings for the coming year.
New displays zero in on pioneer crafts plus a new setting featuring a Turn-of-the-Century bedroom, thanks to Volunteers Judy Jackson and Sue Harsch.
Displays highlight butter churning, tapping trees for maple syrup and spinning sheared wool into yarns. A new display of quilts and oil lamps, a bed from the Sittig family home and a desk from the Lakeside Post Office take the visitor back in time.
TROTOM will participate in the Three Oaks Civil War Days being planned for Saturday and Sunday, July 28-29, 2018. TROTOM is one of the sponsors of this family-oriented event, including a typical army camp and mock battlefield.
And again this summer, TROTOM will host the popular Three Oaks stop on the US 12 Heritage Trail Garage Sale, said to be the nation’s longest, on Aug. 10-12.
Also in the works is another film by Nick Bogert, "Joe Savoldi -- Gridder, Grappler, Hustler, Spy,"the story of one of Three Oaks' most colorful favorite sons. The debut showing is scheduled for Saturday, July 21, at Vickers Theatre. Bogert also produced “Father of the Featherbone,” a movie on the on the life of Three Oaks forefather E.K. Warren and a film about the heritage of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomie Indians.
Spectacular Saturdays at the Museum will be back with stories, games, crafts, experiments and snacks for our youngest visitors on a pre-registration basis.
