HISTORICAL SOCIETY

From the Issue: 
February 2012

The sports collection is coming together with the help of Ken LaPointe and Donald Johnson and will be on display during the months of February and March.  Both Ken and Donald were outstanding athletes at Troy High School.  They played basketball and baseball and ran cross country.  Ken said they all were good in cross country because that was part of the training for all sports.  So stop by the museum to see our sports display.  The museum is open the first three Saturdays of the month from 8:30 to noon (or by appointment.)

With the help of visitors to the museum, we were able to identify one of our mystery items.  It's called a "niddy-noddy" and is used to make skeins for yarn.  We are still looking for information about the string instrument, and we have added a new mystery item to the display.  We need your help to identify it and tell us what its purpose was.

Please mark your calendars for Thursday, March 15th and plan to attend the Troy Historical Society's first monthly meeting for 2012.  We meet at Kimball Hall at 4 PM.  Be in on the planning for Troy's big celebration of its 200th Anniversary.

The museum is open the first three Saturdays of each month from 8:30 to noon and we meet the third Thursday of each month at 4 PM at Kimball Hall.  We need your help in "preserving the past for tomorrow."
