PSU’s Museum of the White Mountains Hosts Welcome Reception Oct. 25

October 11th, 2012 by blyndes

Plymouth, N.H. –The Museum of the White Mountains (MWM) at Plymouth State University invites the greater Plymouth community to a Welcome Reception Thursday, October 25, from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. at the Savage Welcome Center at the PSU Ice Arena. The event is an opportunity for Museum staff to introduce themselves to the community and discuss the upcoming exhibits and programs highlighting the unique history and heritage of the White Mountains.

“We hope this event opens the door – before the museum itself is finished – to community involvement,” said MWM Founding Director Catherine Amidon. “The Museum of the White Mountains will be a wonderful opportunity for the community to share, learn about and celebrate the unique history and cultural legacy of the region. We look forward to sharing our progress and learning more about what the local community would most appreciate in programming as we move forward.”

In addition to the reception, authors Rebecca Oreskes and Doug Mayer will be on hand to talk about their book: Mountain Voices: Stories of Life and Adventure in the White Mountains and Beyond. In this collection of interviews, fifteen profiles capture fascinating stories of travel, adventure, and lifelong passion for nature, along with the spirit of the people who choose to live in the craggy, remote North Country. Over nearly two decades, authors Doug Mayer and Rebecca Oreskes have interviewed extraordinary people whose lives are intricately linked to New Hampshire’s White Mountains. With humor, wit, and unforgettable personal style, these trailblazing pioneers describe the foundation they laid for today’s outdoors enthusiasts.

The Museum set on the campus of Plymouth State University, will open in February, 2013, with presentations, exhibitions and programs for researchers, students and the public. The MWM collection will be available digitally so visitors, regardless of their location, can enjoy the museums offerings.
