Sat. Sept. 5 the Amasa Museum held a Picnic in the Park in conjunction with the Amasa 125th Celebration 2016 committee. It was a sweltering day for the duck race on the Hemlock River at our downtown park. Museum had a tent set up with tables and chairs and served brat and hot dog plate lunches to the crowd of about 75.
The river was low and slow. It took an hour for 5 winner ducks to meander through the finish line chute as the water was so sedate. Kids were jumping into the river to prod the ducks away from the weeds, and get-agoing.
After may years of great weather on Memorial Day you know this would happen sometime. That being said, the museum board would like to thank all who braved the rainstorm and came to support the museum by eating in the food booth, viewing the museum and visiting. The cemetery is so beautiful with the arrangements on the graves, take a ride to see. We missed out on a memorial celebration on Memorial Day because of the rain; but each can do their own. Thank you to the volunteers---Lindsey, Phillips girls, Wes, Aleah, Kay, Sara, Sue, Bill, Tom, Ron, Helga, and the charming 3rd-5th graders who manned the food line very well---Claire, Emma, Angel and Rayven. We can't do this function without all of youse.
Come rain or shine on Memorial Day around noon to the Amasa museum for hot dogs, brats and BBQ plus home made bars.
A bouncy house will be ready.
Tours of the museum will be ongoing at no charge. Raffle tickets are being sold for the 4th of July drawing. Help yourself to a membership form. A single membership is $15 and a family membership is $20.
