Museum Banquet

On Saturday, I attended the St. Clair Historical Museum banquet. It was a really good turnout. Dozens came to show their support for the historical museum, which was nice to see.

There were many silent auction baskets and other items. I had my eye on a St. Patrick’s Day basket that was filled with decorations and beverages for those over 21. Sadly, I was outbid.

After dinner, several appreciation awards were given to those who have spent time and have worked hard to help get the museum back open. As I was taking photos of those recognized, I was surprised to hear my name called.

I was acknowledged for the continued coverage of the historical museum. Although unnecessary, it was refreshing to feel appreciated for my work.

I’ve been covering the St. Clair community for about 10 months now and so many have been welcoming toward me, including members of the historical museum.

Since the start of last summer, I’ve captured the continuing progress of the new museum location. Every time I go back, it looks more organized and put together. I can’t wait to see what it will look like when a grand reopening takes place.

Maintaining history is important for a society to grow forward into the future.
