2014 Events at the Crockett Museum

Veterans Day   The Museum will be open on Veterans Day (which, as we all know, is always November 11, or 11/11) from 11am – 2pm. Light refreshments and a short program will be offered. The amazing and talented high school/middle school band will march down Pomona Street and end up in front of the Museum for some patriotic songs. All are welcome to this important observance of our nation’s many heroes.

Night at the Museum    Don’t miss the event of the season! December 12th is the Friday evening you can come down and enjoy sparkly lights, sparkling conversation, tantalizing hors d’oeuvres, and bubbly drinks at the Museum. Cocktail party attire is suggested, and the party starts at 7pm. And since it ends at the very reasonable hour of 10pm, you can move on to the next holiday party after that! For more information, please call 787-2178 or email crockettmuseum@gmail.com. Tickets are $25, and will be available at the Museum front desk in October. Thank you for supporting the Historical Society’s annual (and only) fundraiser.

Annual Membership Meeting: September 17, 11am

The annual General Membership meeting will be held at the Museum at 11am on September 17th. The Crockett Historical Society always holds this particular meeting in September, commemorating the founding of both Crockett and the Historical Society. This meeting is mandated by the Crockett Historical Society’s by-laws, and it provides an opportunity for Historical Society members to gather together and visit over coffee and light refreshments. Historical Society board members will give short presentations about the happenings and functions of the Crockett Historical Society and Museum since the last meeting. You are invited to join in the fun, whether just attending the meeting or even throwing your hat into the ring, and running to be on the board!
