Life-long residents to share memories at museum event

Those at the McGregor Historical Museum meet so many people from all over the world and become acquainted with new neighbors who have decided to adopt McGregor as their new hometown. But for the guest speakers at the museum’s annual event, McGregor has been their hometown for decades. 

Visit the museum on Friday, Oct. 27, at 6:30 p.m., for an opportunity to listen to and share stories of McGregor life from the decades 1940 to 1960. The evening will begin with stories and memories from Bob Eggen, Alice Staples, Arlys Denning and Jim Hendrickson. The second part of the evening will allow audience members to contribute something special from their personal biographies.

“Oral history captures individuals’ everyday perspectives, unique life experiences, speech patterns and mannerisms,” said Diane Malcom, with the McGregor Historical Museum. “All of this adds real life to our photos, letters, diaries, newspapers and other artifacts at the McGregor Museum. This event will be fun and educational.”

Members and guests will also be welcome to explore the museum. There’s always something new to learn in a place that values antique artifacts and oral history.

There are limited seats available, so please RSVP with a telephone message at (563) 873-2221 or an email at mcgregoriowamuseum@gmail.com.
