Fairbury City Museum Announces September EventsFairbury City Museum
Announces September Events

August 2011 - On Saturday, September 10th at 1:30 p.m., the Fairbury City Museum will host a special event to pay tribute to those who lost their lives on 9/11. The day’s activities will begin with a short program honoring those who  perished while serving their communities with a prayer, moment of silence and the singing of the National Anthem. Children, parents, citizens and friends are invited to participate. “We felt it was important to remember those who serve as first responders and invite anyone who has served or is currently serving to join us,” according to Art Korte, Fairbury City Museum Curator.

Members of law enforcement, fire and emergency medical services will be on hand to give kids a chance to learn about the jobs that they do, see up-close the equipment that is used during emergencies and watch a demonstration featuring Ringo the drug dog. Patrol cars from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department, the ladder truck from the Fairbury City Fire Department and an ambulance from the Jefferson County Ambulance Department will be on display for kids to take a closer look. A demonstration by officer and  handler John Davis will give kids a chance to watch Ringo the drug dog in action.

Also on schedule that day at the Fairbury City Museum will be the announcement of the winner of the Architectural Elements Contest. Since July, citizens and visitors to the community have been challenged to identify unique features that appear on buildings around the courthouse square and in Fairbury’s downtown historic district. Twenty-four elements were featured in the contest, the first-ever of its kind in the community. Anyone submitting a winning entry either by mail or by email has the chance to win a prize package worth more than $300, including a night’s stay at Fairbury Executive Suites, breakfast for two at Griffey’s Steakhouse, gourmet gift baskets from Stagecoach Mall and Sims Florist, a spa treatment from Pure Serenite Spa, a pictorial history book from the Fairbury Chamber of Commerce and a water pillow from Tatro Chiropractic.
Photos and information about the buildings identified in the Architectural Elements Contest will be on display inside the museum and refreshments will also be served.

In other news: Curator Art Korte reported that museum attendance for the month of July was up 633% over last year. The Board of Directors elected a new president, Maryann Willis, and welcomed two new board members, Missy and Matt Schultz, all of Fairbury. Upcoming events for October, November and December are also being planned.

The Fairbury City Museum is open Saturdays and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and is located at 1128 Elm Street, just two blocks off Highway 136, Nebraska’s Heritage Highway.
