2016 Events at the Museum

The Crockett Museum always serves as our community’s gathering place on Memorial Day. This year, Memorial Day is on Monday, May 30th (it is always the last Monday in May). The Museum will open at 11 o’clock for coffee, refreshments, and a short patriotic program honoring the men and women who died serving our country. It will also be the official opening of  a new exhibit- one honoring a group of men serving in the 211th Coast Artillery unit during WWII (protecting the Mare Island Naval Shipyard and partially stationed in Crockett). The exhibit is called, “We Just Called ’em ‘the Boston Boys.’”  Vallejo resident and author Gary Cullen will stop by that day and sign copies of his new book on the same subject (“The Boys From Boston” is about the men of the 211th, as well, but he concentrates on the Vallejo side of the Strait!). Music will play at Rithet Park from 1-3pm.

For more information about the events listed below or any other items, please call the Museum (787-2178) during open hours or email crockmuseum@aol.com. Event dates are subject to change; come on in and explore the various exhibits on Crockett area history and C&H Sugar Co. on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10am to 3pm.

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.
