Tuesday I caught up with Silver City Museum Director Carmen Vendelin as she and her crew set up the exhibition for the 50th anniversary celebration of the Silver City Museum called "50 Years Ago In Silver City". The exhibition opens Friday May 19 with a reception from 4 pm to 6 pm and runs through December 31 with a host of other events spread throughout the months.

The Museum is an important repository of our (and Grant County's) local history through artifacts and photographs and serves both locals and tourists. Because of a series of missteps and misguided intentions by local and state politicians we are facing local and state budget constrains which threatens serious cutbacks or closure f the museum. (Note: The Silver City Library is under similar threat and is the local repository of our historical documents and literature.)

As we celebrate we need also to think about, talk about and become active in the preservation of the repository of our history for generations to come. When we forget our history, both good and bad, we are in danger of loosing our way forward.
