Plains District Memorial Museum is open from 1-4 p.m. Thursday-Sunday. Masks and maintaining social distancing required. Featured exhibits include “Mike Wean Collection of Local Baskets” and a new exhibit, “Land that I Love”, a pictorial gallery of local servicemen who lost their lives on foreign soil during wartime. Exhibit is based on research done as a part of the Museum’s Joe T. May Digital Library Collection. The exhibit includes visual profiles of 34 local men who died as well as artifacts and collections from the war years. Hard copies of the actual research done on each serviceman and the digital library collection on the big screen are available to guests. Visitors are encouraged to share other names and information not included in the current study. The exhibit will be on display through April 2021. An additional highlight of the exhibit is a patriotic quilt, Land That I Love, designed and created as a fundraiser by a museum volunteer. Raffle tickets are available for purchase at the museum. Winner will be announced in December in time for Christmas. Masks, social distancing and COVID 19 protocol is required. Free. 896-7900 or
