The Greenbelt Museum’s historic house will be closed on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2013. We apologize for any inconvenience and we will resume normal Sunday hours, 1-5pm, on April 7.
We have so much in store for 2013! Lectures, events, activities, and more! First we’d like to thank everyone who filled out our survey. We are so grateful for the candid feedback and plan to incorporate many of the suggestions that were offered. Many of you expressed that you wish you had more notice of our activities, so we hope to make that a priority this year. And speaking of activities – mark your calendars now for the second FOGM lecture Tuesday, April 16. The evening will start at 7pm with our annual FOGM meeting for members and will be followed by a lecture at 7:30pm entitled, Ecological Benefits of our Greenbelt Forest Preserve, by Elliot Campbell, Ph.D. We are delighted to be collaborating with the Greenbelt Forest Preserve which is celebrating its 10th year. Stay tuned for details for an exciting bicycling event at the end of May!
In June, we’ll partner with GAVA/GATE and the Recreation Department to screen the GAVA/GATE 75th Animation film as part of the Artful Afternoon on June 2. July’s lecture will feature Stephen Oetken, who’ll talk about the amazing Parkbelt homes. Did you know that in addition to town planning, Greenbelt’s planners experimented with prefabricated housing? Come learn more about these iconic modern homes. Then in late summer, get ready for the second Retro Town Fair at the Labor Day Festival. The event, planned and executed by Sheila Maffay-Tuthill, our Education Coordinator, was so popular that we’ve been asked to do it again! Start growing those tomatoes and practice baking those pies!
