What a difference a day makes...

Or, more accurately, what a difference a few days make. It's wonderful how far we've come with the exhibit. I know, I know...we don't have any photographs or labels up yet, but we've got them printed and mounted. (Thanks to Celina's fine, fine work.) So, really, it's just a matter of time. We're staying late tonight to try to mount the rest of the artifacts. Mickie or Chris will pick up the photos and vinyl lettering from the printers' later today, and we'll get that all up tonight. Which is probably for the best since the sneak peek is tomorrow night. We're closing the museum all afternoon tomorrow to ensure that we've got everything in place before the big unveiling.

We hosted our volunteer appreciation breakfast on Tuesday morning. It was nice to see everyone in a relaxed atmosphere instead of zooming past them on the way to my office or to the printer. We had pastries, fruit, juice, and coffee. Mickie handed out goodie bags and presented each of the volunteers with certificates of appreciation.

So, all that's left this week is the exhibit, finishing the hands-on area and the traveling trunk, preparing for the sneak peek and the exhibit opening (and lecture at the courthouse), and the live remote from the exhibit on Sunday morning. Luckily for me, Mickie and Chris will be here on Sunday morning to do that-- at 6:30 am.
