Grandparents and grandchildren are invited to drop in and enjoy A Grand Day together at North Lincoln County Historical Museum Sunday, May 22, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The museum will offer opportunities for grandparents and grandchildren to bring childhood photos to be copied for the Museum’s archives and have new photos taken together, to write and illustrate a childhood memory, play with pioneer toys, tour the museum and relax with a snack.
“We’re looking forward to meeting grandparents and their grandchildren of all ages and have them share memories and photos for future visitors and researchers,” said Anne Hall, executive director of the Museum.
Grand Day will also provide the opportunity to meet four local people who lived or studied history and enjoy sharing stories from their lives. Lincoln City’s “Lonnie the Logger” will tell stories of local logging and explain how logging equipment on display was used. Joann Kangiser Schnieder, who wrote letters to 14 boys during the war, will describe what it was like on the Central Oregon Coast during the WW II such as when the U.S. Army occupied her Rose Lodge School. Museum Founder and Pearl Harbor Survivor Ed Johann will be present to explain his experience and contribution to WW II. Spirited Story teller Doug Force will also be on hand, in costume, to tell stories of his experience as a “Mountain Man”.
The museum is located at 4907 SW Hwy. 101 in Lincoln City. The event is free, but donations are always appreciated. More information is available by calling 541-996-6614.
