Churchill County Museum is unlocking the rabbit’s door with the magic key and entertaining the audience with the “Mad Hatter Luncheon” on Saturday, April 29 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“Don’t be late” in getting a ticket to this fun event featuring lunch, a raffle, and a silent auction. Tickets are $25 for members and $35 for non-members. If you are “wondering which way to go,” tickets are available at the museum, 1050 S. Maine St, Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Museum Registrar Donna Cossette will be “going down the rabbit hole” to bring out items from the many museum artifacts not currently featured on display in the museum. Rarely viewed items will feature local ancestry items donated to the museum over the years, items very specific to the local area, and those with stories.
The local community has donated items for the auction and raffle including gift certificates, artwork, decorator items, and gift baskets. Items include a Churchill County Ghost Station Tour, sparking crystal items, a collectible silver plate beverage set, an Atlantis Resort Casino restaurant gift certificate, museum coins, and an accent table from Bassham Furniture.
As Alice would say, “Every adventure starts with a first step” so plan to attend the luncheon to see Alice, the witty and thought-provoking Cheshire Cat, The White Hare, and perhaps the Mad Hatter. Follow the white rabbit through the curtain to the Mad Hatter Luncheon and bring a friend. Mad Hatter attire is encouraged.
“Oh, my Ears and Whiskers. Look how late it is getting,” said the White Hare. Call the museum at (775) 423-3677 if you have more questions.
