Bates County Museum’s Annual Show ‘n Tell Program

Bates County Museum’s Annual Show ‘n Tell Program
Saturday, February 2nd   10:00 am
Luncheon following program ~ Free Will Offering

This is it!  This program is always our unofficial kick-off to a new season.  Unofficial because the Museum doesn’t actually open again until April 1st but the Annual Show ‘n Tell Program is always one of the most highly anticipated.  This is the time to share your family heirlooms or interesting ‘finds’ you’ve acquired.  It’s the time to bring something peculiar that you may not know exactly what it is.  We’ll have lots of folks in attendance that may well be able to identify your mystery item.

From glassware to antique fishing lures, vintage toys to 19th century weapons, we never know what’s going to appear at the annual event.  Come join the fun!  Plan to stay after the program for Soup & Chili (yes, we’re also serving chili dogs with all beef hot dogs!).  A free will offering will get your tummy filled!

Remember ~ History is both Entertaining and Educational!  Call the Museum for further information.  660-679-0134 or email   Hope to see you Saturday
