Tuesdays: ‘Celebrate the Story’

The History Museum of Hood River County has begun its winter program series: “Celebrate the Story,” held Tuesday evenings in the atrium gallery through March 19.

This week, the theme was “Show and Tell,” and included the complete story of Museum Coordinator Connie Nice’s quilt that took 20 years to complete. Also scheduled were opportunities to learn the stories of a few museum artifacts that aren’t often on display, and for attendees to share their own stories.

The winter program series runs from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the museum, 300 E. Marina Drive in Hood River. The series, celebrates the many ways to discover, capture and share the unique story of Hood River County, and learn how these apply to your own family story.

Cost to attend is free for museum members and $5 general admission for non-members. For more information contact the museum at 541-386-6772 or thmvolunteer@hrecn.net.

Be a volunteer

On Saturday, Jan. 26, The History Museum will hold a volunteer orientation from 3-5 p.m. Volunteer opportunities include serving as docents, research assistants, event planners, and more.

The session will cover updated volunteer procedures for both new and returning volunteers. It will also give an opportunity to learn about the new museum space and programs.

For more information contact Carly Squyres, volunteer coordinator, at 541-386-6772 or thmvolunteer@hrecn.net.

The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
