We managed to get a decent entry together for the Parade. Panels decorated the 1927 Model T Truck, which was loaned to the Museum by Roots of Motive Power and driven by expert Model T driver, Don Ford.
It is the opening reception for the Bicentennial Signatures and Stamps Collection in the Long Gallery, and Dennis Tuomala shared his stories with avid stamp fans. His daughter, Allison Tuomala, is well on her way in the collecting field, with a display of Broadway Playbills, autographed by the starring actors.
July 4th also marks the first day of the display of photos and items from Jesse Pittman's family, commemorating his service as a Navy Seal and his death almost one year ago. It's a somber complement to the Veterans History: Personal exhibit. Those who want to only see the display for Jesse Pittman, and to visit the rest of the Museum at some other time, may come in free at any time.
