Sneak peek inside future museum
Submitted By Heather Mellon
The Hayward Area Historical Society (HAHS) is inviting its members to a sneak peek inside its future museum on Foothill Boulevard. As part of their annual members' event, the Historical Society will be inviting members and their guests on hardhat tours of the new building.
Tours are not all that the members' event has to offer; guests can snack on appetizers and beverages while they groove to the tunes of Dave Garges and the All Star Band. The "Past Tents" exhibit will be open for a last chance to learn about how Californians have historically camped. Museum store merchandise will be offered at discount prices for event guests. Also, there will be a free raffle of various prizes for attendees, including limited edition Historical Society books and gifts. Longtime members will receive special recognition in appreciation for their many years of supporting the Historical Society.
Non-member guests are welcome to attend, but encouraged to join! HAHS membership includes receiving invitations to all upcoming programs and events with free or discounted admission. HAHS members, through the national Time Travelers program, receive free or discounted admission to over 200 museums across the country. Members also receive a quarterly newsletter, which will include updates about the Foothill building project.
This year's members' event will be Saturday, August 20 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the new HAHS home and future museum at 22392 Foothill Boulevard in Hayward. Tickets for the event are $15 for Historical Society members and $25 for non-member guests. For tickets, call (510) 581-0223. Tickets must be purchased by August 12.
