      For Immediate Release

      Subject: History Lives Lecture Series

      Parade of Hats, presented by Pat Griswold, will be held at the
      Northeastern Nevada Museum on Tuesday, March 21 at 7:00 p.m. This is
      the third in a series of lectures, History Lives, presented by Great
      Basin College Library and Northeastern Nevada Museum. These programs
      will be held every other Tuesday through May 2 and are designed to
      acquaint people with some of the history of Northeastern Nevada.

      Pat Griswold, a native of Carlin, has been collecting historic
      clothing for nearly 20 years. She has more than 200 hats in her
      collection and will use some of these and also hats from the museum's
      clothing collections in her presentation. More than 50 historic hats
      will either be modeled or on exhibit. "Pat's hat collection is
      absolutely amazing," said Claudia Wines, museum director. "There is
      such a wide variety. Some are beautiful, some are very unusual, and
      others are just crazy. The models are having a great time picking out
      which hats to wear. It should be a great show!"

      Pat Griswold, along with Marjorie Kellers, volunteer at the museum,
      and work in the clothing area. They sort, label, clean, mend and
      preserve the thousands of items that have been donated to the
      collections. "The staff of the museum really appreciate the work done
      by Pat and Marge," said Wines. "It is a huge job and they do it with
      so much professionalism."

      The other History Lives programs will feature Giovanna – Dance Hall
      Ghost of Wells, by Gene Kaplan, April 4; Mining & Ranching in Mountain
      City by Larry Otheim and Larry Monroe, April 18; and City of San
      Francisco Train Wreck by Dr. Tom Gallagher and Friends, May 2.

      Antique Tea and China Sets on display in Time for Tea Party Fashion Show

      The exhibits department at the Northeastern Nevada Museum has put a
      new display in the museum theater of antique tea cups, saucers and tea
      accessories to accompany the tea party that is slated for Tuesday
      March 21, 2006. All of the tea cups are from the permanent collection
      of the Northeastern Nevada Museum. All guests at the tea party will be
      treated to a fashion show of antique hats, put together by Pat
      Griswold for one portion of the Annual History Lives Lecture Series
      held every spring at the museum.

      The tea sets will be on display in the museum theater until April 30,
      2006. There is a wide variety of tea cups, saucers and tea accessories
      from all different time periods. There are over 100 pieces of tea
      service in the display. Included is a small tea pot brought on a boat
      around the horn of South America by the great grandmother of Sarah
      Edwina Woodrum Plumb who resided in Mountain City. Also displayed, and
      pictured here is a red and gold tea cup and saucer and tea pot that
      was brought across the plains from England by Ann Rogers Taylor who
      has many descendants still in the area including the Wines and Sharps
      families from Ruby Valley. They were donated by the Lewis Sharp
      family. Also displayed is a tea cup and saucer from the 1960s that was
      donated by the Bernice Gregory family. In all there is almost a 150
      year span to the entire collection.

      The tea party and fashion show will begin at 7:00 in the museum
      theater. There is no charge for the event. The public is welcome to
      attend. Tea and cakes will be provided by the museum and the library
      department of Great Basin College who is co-sponsoring the event.

      The tea party and fashion show is just one of the many activities
      planned for this year that will help celebrate the Northeastern Nevada
      Historical Society's 50th Birthday. Along with all new exciting
      exhibits the museum will have many special events and activities the
      entire year. The highlight of the year will be the Birthday Ball on
      November 4, 2006 and a huge birthday party for the entire town on
      November 11, 2006 which will include a 50 foot long birthday cake free
      to the public.
