May Recap
Pop Shop Play Area

The Museum's Pop Shop imaginative play area has a new addition! Built by the Museum, painted by the local Model A Club and a local sign artist adding the finishing touches, the truck is ready to be stocked and "driven" to its next customer. Along with the delivery truck, the play area has a "mixing station", a bottling station, and soon a hand crank conveyor belt!
HANA Garage Sale
May 17 & 18

The Museum raised over $600 during the two day event. Proceeds will go towards supporting Museum programs, events and collections. Thank you to all who generously donated! Items sold were given by Museum Members, Board Members and residents.
House Walk
Sunday, May 20

The Society's largest fundraiser featured five beautiful homes that were opened to the public to tour. The annual anticipated event drew participants from Arlington Heights and the surrounding suburbs. As an added bonus, participants were treated to a talk given by the owner of Jaunt in Arlington Heights focusing on home design utilizing expert tips and tricks to maximize space. In addition, Courtland's Garage displayed a collection of the Museum's artifacts highlighting the history of the building which now houses the popular tavern. Thank you to all who endured the rain to support the Museum!

Thank you to all our sponsors, Courtland's Garage, and Jaunt. This event was not possible without your support!
