Virtual Tour Available at: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=PJCcgSEAa9A
Everyone loves toys! Each generation has a connection to the iconic toys of their youth, some have staying power and some have disappeared from the toy store shelves. Toys foster early childhood development by stimulating the imagination, learning and creativity, play also helps adults in areas of problem solving and happiness. We will invite you to come kindle the sense of nostalgia for the toys of your youth and learn about the toys of past generations in this exhibit featuring toys of the 50s, 60s, and 70s as well as the local toy store that brought fun and merriment to this small Washington community, Wenatchee Cycle and Toy.
Thank you for our Presenting Sponsor, Keyhole Security and Ron and Jeanne Lodge, for their support for this exhibit!
Weaving a Legacy
Karen Russell began her service to the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center by joining the Museum’s Board in 2013. She courageously stepped up to serve as president in 2014 during a turning point for the Museum. While the Museum transitioned from one Executive Director to another Karen and her husband, Jim Russell, supported the staff as they worked to serve the community. The influence of the Russells helped the Museum overcome adversity and continue its mission. Their service to the Museum and the Wenatchee Valley community has been invaluable. With this exhibit we celebrate, honor, and thank Jim and Karen Russell for their service to the Museum through sharing the activities Karen (1941 – 2019) loved, most notably weaving and performance art. Join us in celebrating these two dear members of the Museum community! The exhibition opens on Friday, September 3 and runs through Saturday, November 6, 2021.
