June 2024 Third Tuesday Program Announced

Jun 17, 2024

The Union County Museum hosts their first Third Tuesday event of the season, June 18, 2024, at 7 p.m., in the Little White Church, beside city hall and across Main Street from the museum in Union. The theme of the evening is Treasures & PuzzlersWhat’s in Your Closet or Tool Shed?

Audience members are invited to bring an item from their own collection of antiques for a “Show & Tell” session. Do you have a family treasure with a unique story of its own? Can you stump the audience with a tool or other item few will recognize or know its use? Board member Anne Rodriguez is coordinating this evening.

“We hosted a similar activity during our annual meeting last fall and everyone enjoyed it,” said Anne. “It’s a great opportunity to shine some light on an item or two from your family’s past or to have some fun getting people to guess about a mystery item from Great-Grandpa’s tool shed.” Anne added she hopes the audience will include people who can help solve the mystery for some antique tools and other items.

Please contact Anne if you have questions or to let her know you are bringing an item for the activity,
541-963-8128. If you aren’t comfortable presenting the item yourself, a board member can show and tell for you. To submit a proposal for your own presentation, contact the museum at history@ucmuseumoregon.com.

The Union County Museum is located at 333 South Main Street in Union. It is open Wednesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., through September.
