My granddaughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to your wonderful museum! It helped us learn a great deal of history about my new community, having just moved here 2 months ago. I look forward to more visits and soaking in more of the heritage. The Director, Suzi and all the volunteers who work so passionately to make everything just right are to be commended for their countless hours of work!

It was fun meeting you both Ken – we thoroughly enjoyed showing you around along with the ‘lively’ conversations we had! Thanks for coming in!!
Thanks very much and we’ll definitely be visiting the museum more frequently as there is so much to see and read and hear. I’ve been in a lot of museums and I so appreciate all the extra efforts that have been given to get everything just right. The love and passion for La Center’s museum is very evident.
