Well, we've posted our first video on Youtube.com. It is a very entertaining reading of the Dr. Welch story for kids by Samantha Tai, a librarian from the Vineland Public Library. To find it, just go to https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_4VY15RcwEI4LrhqSode.A. It's a delightful tale read by one of our favorite people!
One of our favorite guest speakers, Mark Demitroff's presentation in August was enjoyed by a record number of people at the Society and over Zoom. Mark offered insight into Vineland's early days and explained how all of the small towns in the region were a true industrial network in the early days. We look forward to welcoming him back again very soon!
Visitors to the museum will see a new exhibit this year devoted to the anniversary celebrations that once dominated local life. It seems that Vineland residents loved to party and, each year, the anniversary provided them with an opportunity to stage parades, dances, dinner parties, concerts and more to celebrate the founding of what would become an extremely important town. The elegant poster seen here at left was one of the many distributed throughout the region to show that Vineland celebrated in style (although we're still wondering about that seven nights of frolic...). We hope that you will come out to enjoy the exhibit and learn more about Vineland's past.
