Trivia Night Cancelled
We have cancelled our planned Trivia Night because we didn't have enough interest shown to hold it.
We had a fun event two years ago and had many people asking for another night, but unfortunately not enough tickets were sold, so rather than go to a lot of work with no success, we chose to cancel.
We try to come up with new ideas for activities that interest the public and generate interest (and funds).If you have any ideas for such events, please let Jane Smith or any officer know. Thank you in advance.
New Gift Items
We are excited to offer a new item in our gift shop.Actually, there are several new items. The first is a clock with a three-dimensional inset of Conneaut Lake with the streets of the area surrounding the inset. It is a beautiful piece of work and perfect for people who grew up or visited the area often. It is $80, which includes tax and handling.
We also have pictures of the same design.They range from 8 by 10 (in glass frame) and is beautiful.It is $45 which includes tax and shipping.
The same picture is available in an 11 by 14 .or 14 by 18.They come in light or dark oak or for $10 more, a rustic shade.The rustic is not three dimensional. The 11 by 14 is $70/
A 3-D of the same picture in frame would be a beautiful picture for a business as well as home.It sells for $130.
We also have photo albums with the design in a leather-like cover of "Memories of Conneaut Lake" It is $45. The same design is available in notepads, a small one is about a 5 by7 for $35 and the larger one is an 8 by 10 for $45.
Another bonus is we have the identical items for Pymatuning Lake!
And, if you want it customized -- with s star indicating where you live -- or lived -- that can added for $25.
We will post pictures soon, but the items are on display at the museum. They will make perfect gifts for others -- or for yourself.
Please contact Jane Smith at 814-337-6377 to order or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
