Issue No. 3

Summer is here!  There is so much going on at the Museum that you must drop by to see for yourself!

I would like to thank Transylvania Regional Hospital for their sponsorship of our current exhibit "Healing Hands:  From Folk Traditions to Modern Medicine." This exhibit is sponsored on behalf of the many doctors, nurses and caregivers who have provided medical care to the people of Transylvania County. 

Make plans to visit the Museum for All American Fun on July 4th.  Take a break from the day and play some bingo under the shade tree. Also, mark your calendars for the Founders' Day Fair August 30th.  This year there is a raffle. Tickets are available now at the Museum.  Stop by to see a complete list of items. 


Please share this newsletter with those who may be interested, and with those who may not even know we exist!  Word of Mouth is our best publicity, so hit that forward button for us, and spread the word!


Sincerely - Rebecca Suddeth, Executive Director
