Plymouth, N.H. – The Museum of the White Mountains (MWM) at Plymouth State University welcomed the greater Plymouth community to a Welcome Reception Thursday, October 25 at the Savage Welcome Center at the PSU Ice Arena. The event was 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.
“This is a great event with a wonderful turnout,” said MWM Founding Director Catherine Amidon. “Not only are people learning about the Museum, some people are seeing the new Ice Arena for the first time, and it’s delightful to have the opportunity to talk to people about these new projects.”
In addition to the reception, authors Rebecca Oreskes and Doug Mayer were 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.
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.
