The Jake Menghini Museum is very happy to announce that, after months of planning and preparation, we have our new sign! Upon considering options, it was decided to purchase the sign from Xcell Graphix. The sign was erected Wednesday, August 26th, 2015, replacing the sign that was on Chestnut Street.
Pictured here are Bill VanWolvelaere, Museum Board Treasurer; Ryan Doda, owner of Xcell Graphix & Signs; and Mike Erhart with Xcell. The new sign is visible going either east or west on US 2.
The Norway-Vulcan area demonstrates a remarkable level of citizen engagement in organizations, volunteer work, and public events. If you or someone you know is applying to a school, or applying for a job, remember that many colleges, universities, and employers look for volunteer work on candidates' applications and resumes.
If you're a community member with an interest in the Jake Menghini Historical Museum, or simply in trying something new, consider becoming one of next summer's tour guides. Contact Ms. Hamlin to inquire.
Tour hours are now Friday 1-4, Saturday 10-2 and Sunday 11-2
