The Smithsonian Exhibit “The Way We Worked”
Schedule of Events
May 12 – June 23, 2012
The Smithsonian traveling exhibit, The Way We Worked, is almost here. This is a wonderful and exciting theme. Americans identify with their work and love to talk, or complain, about it. The exhibit opens at the Boundary County Museum on May 12th and runs through June 23rd. We will once again have a great learning, educational and entertainment opportunity. We can showcase our Boundary County history, explore who we are and how we define ourselves. In addition to the traveling exhibit, many local individuals, groups and organizations will be taking part. Mark your calendar for May 12th from 2:00-5:00 pm for the grand opening festivities at the Museum.
