- The Museum would like to thank everyone for coming out to Marches Event. We had a very fun ST. Patrick’s Day Celebration with an amazing yummy ST. Patty’s day themed food for the potluck, games, prizes, a photo opt, and so much more fun. There are some great pictures posted on the Minidoka Museum Face book page Link:
- Ray Stockton has continued his efforts in the yellow building and is making stations and organizing things very well. He has also had help from Jim Grisenti and Lynn Schenk as well as a few others. There have been new items added to the Livery and Tack Room and throughout the Museum. So if you have not been out for a while thinking it hasn’t changed, please come take a second look.
- We truly appreciate our volunteers and encourage you all to come out when you can or any groups you may have that may need some service projects or hours. There is always something to do around here.
- Speaking of volunteer’s we are excited about a new sign for the Museum that hangs over the fence and hopefully can get noticed by people coming from both directions. It was an Eagle Scout project done by Grayson Boldt. He drew his own design in class at high school and worked hard on cutting it out. The sign is buried 4 feet so it should with stand these Idaho winds we have. We truly want to thank him for his time, dedication, and community minded project that will last for years to come.
- April Shower’s (and snow and crazy wind) brings an opportunity to do inside events such as taking a Museum tour and brings fun events in May also… Be on the look out!
- Rock’n the Museum with the Monkeys… The local Rupert Grease Monkey is once again pairing up with us to play with rocks! April 21st We will be having a “Rock Scavenger Hunt” there will be a scavenger clue handout sheet upon arrival and hunt will begin at 1pm, followed by a day of painting your own rocks that you can hide by donating them back to the Museum and hide your rocks on our property for others to find or take them with you and hide them throughout the community. Since our Friends from the Grease Monkey are joining us there will be prizes also offered by them.
- Ray’s Jam Session will be held on Saturday 28th at 1pm. This is a fun informal music day of Country Western. Come on out to listen or join in if you play.
Eagle Scouts looking for projects are welcome to call or stop in and discuss a museum project. A number of Eagle Scouts have completed museum projects over the years, and there are many more project opportunities available.
Interviewers are needed to speak with our senior citizens and record their memories of WWII. Memories of Camp Rupert would be much appreciated.
If you can help either of these projects, please contact Melissa at the museum, 436-0336.
