Change of Next Open House Date-Now June 26 Noon to 2 PM
HGA has changed the date of its next Open Houses for the Train Station and First Fire House from July 3 to JUNE 26 Noon to 2 PM. The reason is two-fold. It avoids the July 4 Weekend and it coincides with Georgetown's Community Clean Up Event on June 26. That event starts at 8 AM and ends at noon. The organizers of the Community Clean Up are using the First Fire House on our complex as the staging area. At noon, there will be entertainment and food available as part of a community celebration. The Governor and Lt. Governor plan to attend at some point as well. HGA plans to have Lil Toot available to give rides to children that day from Noon to 2 PM. The Train Station Museum will be open for self guided tours and the model trains will be running. Come join us for this special Open House event coinciding with the Community Clean Up Day festivities.

Historic Georgetown Association is planning a special "President's Display" for the Georgetown Train Station museum area. Over the years, many area residents have had the opportunity to have their picture taken with a US President. If you are one of those individuals we would like for you to provide a copy to HGA so we can add it to the collection. HGA will provide the frame for the picture. Please contact Martin Donovan at [email protected] or Lynn Moore at [email protected] if you have a picture with a President that we can place in our display. Thanks for your cooperation.
