Memorial Day 2021 Open House

The Hancock County Museum’s first open house since The Covid 19 pandemic closures and the HCM’s closure for renovations was a joyous celebration of Memorial Day 2021. The New Manchester Boy Scout Troop # 137 under the leadership of Robbie Littel and Dave Lawson presented a formal flag raising ceremony followed by Robert Bailey playing a musical rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. Robert followed that with selected upbeat tunes from the war days eras. Visitors were even seen dancing on the front porch to “The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boys of Company C.” Featured exhibits were our newly acquired World War II Scrapbooks donated by Joyce Frain, uniforms, and detailed beautifully produced models of military equipment made and donated by Mr. David Buchanan. These exhibits will be on display on the main floor of the museum at least until the end of October, 2021. As always, refreshments were provided for our guests, who enjoyed touring, talking, and enjoying the perfect weather.
