Sawyer the Seadog is checking out the builders model of USS New York. USS New York (ACR-2/CA-2) was the second United States Navy armored cruiser so designated; the first was the ill-fated Maine, which was soon redesignated a second-class battleship. Due to the unusually protracted construction of Maine, New York was actually the first armored cruiser to enter U.S. Navy service. The fourth Navy ship to be named in honor of the state of New York, she was later renamed Saratoga and then Rochester. With six 8-inch guns, she was the most heavily armed cruiser in the US Navy when commissioned.
These people. ❤️ Being a Volunteer Coordinator is one of the most rewarding jobs. Pictured are the majority of my volunteers at the First Division Museum. They are veterans, docents, lobby greeters, exhibit facilitators, researchers, collections and motor pool volunteers. They are passionate about history. They are professional, knowledgeable, dedicated, reliable and trustworthy people who give so much of their time to our museum. Tonight we celebrated them, and it was an honor to do so. #fdmuseum#firstdivisionmuseum#cantignypark#whenyouworkatamuseum#volunteercoordinator#volunteers
We’ve been enjoying all the holidays have had to offer at the Quick Center, specifically a recent visit from Mrs. Claus who took time out of her busy holiday schedule to perform 3 nearly sold out shows in our Rigas Family Theater of a Kit's Interactive Theatre Presentation of “The Mrs. Claus Holiday Show.” Theater goers were invited to join in the good cheer of the yuletide with Mrs. Claus and Herbie the Elf. They read stories, sang holiday songs and danced with the Sugarplum Fairies in a jolly celebration. The program combined theater, music and improvisation, with audience members cast right into the show!
. Kitty Jones has been developing her unique style of interactive theater since 1987, combining her passion for history and her love of theater to create high-energy interactive shows.

An immense THANK YOU to Kitty Jones and Kit’s Interactive Theatre for always offering such engaging and fun theatre performances for our local schools & families!
This “telephone charges clock” is used to measure the units of dial charges in the 1960s. Making calls is not cheap at that time and with help of this clock, you could finish a call before it gets too expensive.
Mit dieser Telefon-Gebührenuhr kontrolliert man in den 1960er-Jahren die Kosten für Telefonate. Telefonieren ist in dieser Zeit nicht günstig. Mit Hilfe der „Kienzle Telestop“ behält man die Gebühren im Blick und kann Gespräche beenden, bevor es zu teuer wird.
The wait is over! Inspired by the beautiful Valadier exhibition @frickcollection these bon bons are hand-painted to imitate marble and topped with real edible gold leaf. So happy with how these turned out!
Introducing the Cultivate Coordinators: Amy, Jenny and Caitlin! 🌱
We have some exciting things coming up as part of the Cultivate Network in 2019 & we’d love to see you at the MGAWA Christmas Party this Wednesday to discuss our plans over drinks, food and bowling!
Otherwise feel free to get in touch if you have any ideas or thoughts about #perthglamr#professionaldevelopment , or would like to meet up for a coffee ☕☕☕
A few days ago I had the pleasure of meeting with other agriculture specialists from various tidewater living history museums at Yorktown for our winter gathering. Talking shop, planning future collaborations and comparing tobacco growth and curing made for a fine afternoon.
It's been a while since our official launch event in October, where over 70 people came together to mingle, network, and make chatterbox conversation starters to break those ‘I don’t know anyone here’ nerves!
It was great to have you there, to speak to so many of you and to hear more about what you want Cultivate to do for you.
We know we've been a bit on the quiet side since then, but we have good reason. We've been working on the best ways to get you all what you asked for, planning what we hope will be an exciting program for next year, and working with the team at MGAWA to make sure we're doing everything within the organisation's strategic and operational goals. In short, we've been making sure we have the capacity to do everything you guys want us to do.
Stay tuned for more Cultivate Network news in 2019 – we hope to see you again soon!
