Midale Museum members greatly appreciate the help of the many people that came out to work the pancake breakfast, play music for the people, drive and take care of the tractors, trucks and equipment and those who hauled the bales. Without all the volunteers, the museum would not be able to provide the public with the threshing days. The members will be having a meeting near the end of the month and if any of you are interested in joining and helping out, please talk to a member and they will let you know when a date has been set. The museum is hoping to get their “Museum in a Suitcase” up and running soon. This will be items from the museum taken around to schools in the area. They will show them to the children and explain how they work, what they were used for and give the general history of the items. This report was given by Bev Sobush, secretary for the Midale Museum Members. Please contact Bev if you have any questions or would like to help out.
