The Geneva History Museum will celebrate the entire month of May with “May is Membership Month.” Anyone who renews or becomes a Museum Member anytime during May will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 gift certificate to the Museum. The certificate can be used in the Gift Shop, for research fees, or for registration to Museum programs and events.
Those who wish to increase their Membership and make a one-hundred dollar or more donation in May will receive a complimentary Membership, recognition on the Museum’s lobby wall, entry in the gift certificate drawing, and notecards of a watercolor rendering of 7 S. Third Street, exclusively commissioned by the Geneva History Museum by Geneva artist, Dennis Gramlich.
As part of May is Membership Month, the Museum will celebrate the 100th birthday of the buildings at 17 and 21 South Third Street that were built in 1918 as Tri-City Garage to serve motorists on the Lincoln Highway. The birthday party will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., Saturday, May 19 with photographic displays of the building, cupcakes, lemonade and coffee served at the Museum. Self-guided tour booklets of the former Tri-City Garage will be available to pick up at the Museum and guided tours will be offered each half hour at 10:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 11:30 a.m. Behind-the-scenes tours of the Museum’s archives and collections will also be offered at those times. Reservations are not required to attend the party and take the tours. Attendees may renew or become a Museum Member at this event.
