The public is invited to the Union County Museum Society’s Annual Meeting, Friday, October 15, at 7 p.m., in the Little White Church. In addition to reports of the season and brief non-profit business, the event will include music by the Sheehy Brothers & Friends. The theme for the music is French-Canadian music of the Nineteenth Century. John Sheehy will also talk about the early French-Canadian influence in Union County.
“Come hear about what we’ve been up to at the museum and see the improvements to the Little White Church,” said Nod Palmer. “Enjoy traditional music and the chance to visit with other museum patrons and volunteers.”
Over the last year and a half, the Union County Museum has taken advantage of the 2020 closure and a quiet current season to update exhibits and make improvements to the Little White Church, which is owned by and located across Main Street from the museum in Union.
“The outside of the Little White Church received a thorough going over,” said Nod Palmer, President of the Union County Museum Society. “Old boards were replaced; several coats of white paint were applied, and we removed the crumbling old cement steps and replaced them with an ADA compliant wooden staircase and ramp. We also installed a new, modern porch light.” Palmer said the interior was painted and the wood floor refinished in recent years, as well.
Palmer said they were fortunate to find skilled workers right in Union to do all this work. He said the last thing to be done around the LWC is landscaping, which is expected to be finished this fall. The building is available to rent for small weddings and events.
