Museum to sell Commemorative Ornament Series

First Ornament Honors the Current Museum


The first of those new fund raisers is the sale of the first in a series of annual commemorative Christmas ornaments sponsored by the museum..

This collectible 2012 ornament honors the current Rockford Area Historical Museum and its founders. They are American Made, and feature the detailed image of our current museum engraved in wood from an Alder tree which can be found around the world in almost 30 species. Alder wood is sought after for carving, millwork, and interior furniture. Only 250 will be produced.

In addition to the image of our current museum, the design will include a banner displaying the dates 1976 and 2012, indicating the years the current museum has been in operation.

Each ornament will come with a ribbon hanger and a card telling a brief history of wood and its importance at Christmastime dating back to the Middle Ages. Each ornament will also include a certificate confirming the limited production and outlining the history of the museum and the current building plus a tribute to the founders of the Rockford Area Historical Society.

Sure to become a collector’s item, the ornaments are being sold for the attractive price of only $15.00 each. Checks may be mailed to the society at P.O. Box 781, Rockford, MI 49341.
