Virtual kick-off celebration: Wilson Museum’s 100th anniversary

April 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Help celebrate the Wilson Museum’s 100th anniversary by joining us in a virtual kick-off especially planned to be on Dr. John Howard Wilson’s birthday anniversary (born April 9, 1871 – yes, 150 years ago!). This virtual event will begin via Zoom at 7 p.m. with an introduction of upcoming events and a drawing for a tote bag filled with gifts from the Wilson Museum community (books, gift certificates, homemade crabapple jelly… and more!).

Snippets from the Wilson Family’s Home Movies
Guests will be invited to view a selection of early film taken by the Wilson Family between the mid-1930s and the mid-1940s. This footage has been extracted from the collection and reassembled to feature some members of the family, a few of their friends, and the local area of which Dr. Wilson and his wife Georgia were so very fond. A special treat will be seeing a glimpse of Georgia Wilson, daughter Ellenore, and their friend Anita Harris of Holbrook Island. You won’t want to miss it!

Guests are encouraged to prepare their favorite drink to toast the 100th Anniversary and a piece of birthday cake (or popcorn) to enjoy during the film.

Registration is free and required by April 7. Email the Wilson Museum staff at info@wilsonmuseum.org to register, subject line: “Kick-off Registration.”

Participants must be present on Zoom to win the raffle prize.
