To the editor:
One of the most satisfying aspects of restoring or building something is to show it to others and share their enjoyment.
The crew that works and has worked at the old theatre on Walnut Street has had the satisfaction of doing that for you. It is a unique community project.
They have had the pleasure of mixing with people of common interests, enriching their lives by developing something without thought of personal gain.
It has led to much social activity for groups of varied interests and ages, and has saved a wealth of old skills and knowledge from going to waste among the older population.
The museum is a place to preserve and pass on these skills, and at the same time have the companionship and sense of usefulness that one may feel is lost on retirement.
The local museum on Walnut Street in Cynthiana is a comprehensive historic park that provides both passive and active recreation and entertainment for young and old.
The idea is to create for the county, state and country an educational base available to all levels of education from preschool to all ages and to make all aware of their past and the endeavors of our pioneers.
The Cynthiana-Harrison County Museum is open on Fridays and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by appointment (859-234-7179). There is no charge for admission. Everyone is welcome.
“In a small town, being neighborly is essential and support for your museum is vital.”
