I am sad and glad today 11-25-14. Sad because Emily Wilson is leaving the position  of Assistant Museum Curator and glad because she is attending college to pursue a degree as a medical laboratory technician. I am always happy for our staff to move on to pursue their dreams.  Emily began work as Assistant Curator after High School graduation last June and has been a tremendous help to improve our museum. She worked on improving all the displays and was a great host to museum visitors.We will miss Emily and can only wish her well in this new adventure and career.

Here is me your Museum Curator with Emily and some of our 20 cabinets and shelves of displays that she helped make into a welcome experience for our visitors. Emily helped make video's, QR codes for hearing a description of a vintage computer with a smart phone by just clicking on the code, writing description of many displays - & much more. Emily was great as assistant curator in our museum. Thank You , Emily for all the help.

Alice Cox - Planting trees at Chantilly RV Park
Alice Cox  has been helping at our Chantilly Farm and  occasionally at the museum. Alice will be working as Assistant Curator off and on as time allows. Alice came to work the same time as Emily after High School Graduation last Spring. Alice and Emily both started as Summer Interns and continued working into the Fall. Alice was off to college at Virginia Tech this fall however she had a great opportunity when voted in as the state office for FFA as state Recorder & continued here at the LCF group.  Her position with FFA for the year is not full time and when not assisting the FFA Alic is working with our LCF Group. Alice is mostly working as a manager at of the grounds at our Chantilly Farm just a few miles from the museum. We are delighted with the assistance Alice has provided as we develop the farm festival venue and new full service RV and Camp grounds.  She will continue her work here at the museum and farm for this school year and then start at Virginia Tech in the fall of 2015 working on her Agricultural Education degree.  We are sure happy to have her here for until she is off to college in the Fall of 2015.

We are all home for the Thanksgiving Holiday - several of our  team were without power for a few days but all is OK now Friday November 28th.  At our house we will have about 32 family members here for dinner - this is day after Thanksgiving however two turkeys are ready to be served. A Happy and Great Thanksgiving to all our readers and we will miss Emily when we start back at the Museum on Monday.
