Prairie County Museum and Cameron Gallery preparing for summer season

 From Prairie County Museum

         Preparations for the 2012 summer season are well under way at the Prairie County Museum and Evelyn Cameron Gallery. 

Each spring volunteers and area service groups come together to help prepare the Museum and Gallery for its opening over Memorial Day weekend. 
Visitation to the museum and gallery is expected to remain high as there is ongoing publicity regarding the Evelyn Cameron Photo collection. 
With the Cameron Gallery as Terry’s “Crown jewel,” travel magazines continue to praise Evelyn Cameron’s work and encourage visitors to tour Terry and the surrounding area to not only view the photographs but also to  see firsthand the landscapes that inspired her work.
A special event at the museum and gallery is also planned for Sunday June 3. An Ice Cream Social will be held to encourage area residents to enjoy an afternoon at the museum and gallery with friends and neighbors.  
At this event the museum board will be honoring its two remaining founding members, Wynona Breen and Mary Haughian. Wynona and Mary have been a driving force in the ongoing success of the museum and gallery and they will be recognized for their commitment to preserving our local history. 
More details regarding the Ice Cream Social will be announced later in May.
Area residents who are interested in sharing our county’s rich history are encouraged to volunteer as tour guides for the summer season. 
Visitors to the museum often write later to say, “Thanks,” and praise the persons who made their trip through our facilities memorable. 
Please contact Vadnae Greenfield by telephone or email at if you would like to receive more information about volunteering at the museum and gallery.
