Alexandria Museum Friends: The Alexandria Museum Board is planning a Vintage Wedding Dress Display/Event. We are in search of Wedding Dresses from the 1800's through about 1970 era that we can borrow. We want to find Alexandria family heritage gowns. If your Grandmother, mother, aunt, long time friend, etc. grew up in and or was married in Alexandria, we would sure like to borrow her gown. And at the same time it would be a chance to honor past residents connected to our beautiful village. If they were married here, they too must have special memories and history they would enjoy sharing too. If you know of someone, please share this with them. We want to display as many local gowns as possible. This event is planned for the month of June. Please message me, or Martha Sturgill.
A big "Thank You" to all who came out in support of Fun Days!

Thanks to all who helped us raise some extra cash for needed upkeep of the museum.
Thanks to Martha for giving us a tour of the museum during the off hours on Monday - have always enjoyed seeing where my great grandfather, Dr, L C Laycock lived and practiced his profession. The museum is a great asset to Alexandria and its history. Keep up the good work!
