Sally Johnson, president of the Tri-Rivers Museum Network, officially cancelled “Spring into the Past” (SITP) museum tour set for May 2 &3.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, all the musems of the network have been closed, as spring has rolled in.
“We all like SITP but with all that is going on right now we have to follow the directions of our governor and the health authorities,” said Johnson. “All museums are closed at this time and we are not sure when we will be allowed to reopen. It is not worth the health of our membership to take a chance on opening.”
“I am sorry to say that we will not be having our annual SITP event and we will not be meeting any time soon,” Johnson said. “It doesn’t look like things are going to change for the better anytime soon. When we do meet we will then assess the situation and make a decision at that time.”
The popular spring event that features around 30 area museums may be postponed for fall.
“I am sure you also feel obligated to follow the guide lines that have been put before us,” Johnson said.
Each year, the Fallasburg Historical Society (FHS) participates in the SITP tour opening up their flagship one-room schoolhouse museum.
