The Windermere Valley Museum and Archives will be hosting our bi-monthly meeting during Heritage Week. For this event only, we will be open for public to tour our main building during the day and from 2:00 to 4:00 we will have a showing from our vault, Fall Fair (1961), with tea to follow.
Come to see the showing or arrive just for tea, we will begin mid-afternoon with a 20 minute reel to reel showing of a local Fall Fair from 1961. As tea is served the discussion will begin with historical information of the movie and taking information on what was watched as the local attendees discuss the details they know. The rest of the afternoon will round out with any conversation that arises from any typical tea setting.
