On October 28, 2020 the Franklin Square Civic Association asked our Society to be a guest on a video session to tell the community about the museum progress. Dr. Paul van Wie and Nancy Youngfert were able to talk about all the recent progress on the museum and also showed some of the newest additions to our artifact collection.
There were over 40 people watching on the internet the meeting!
