Due to Governor Walz’s Stay at Home order the Executive Director, Nicole Elzenga, has been working from home. During this time period organizations have been posting more frequently on their social media avenues to share artifacts, photographs, stories, and more. Elzenga has also added a few new videos to the YouTube page for visitors to see exhibits in the Main Museum.
Some of the social media posts have included such hashtags as #mnmuseums, #RenvilleCountyMN, #letsgotomorton, #MNHistoryatHome, and a few fun ones #mnoddities, #creepiestobject, #recipecollection, #artifactoftheday. Simply copy-paste one of the hashtags into GOOGLE or another search engine and the pages will show up with various museums’ posts.
RCHS is considering putting a booklet together of the posts to have for sale at the 2020 Renville County Fair.
If you have an #mnodditiy in your own personal collection please share on our various social media sites and be sure to tag us!
As the Stay at Home order will expire on Sunday, May 17, 2020 (midnight) Elzenga will be returning to work at the office but the Museum is still closed to the public until June 1, 2020. This information may change but Elzenga will keep the information updated on the website and social media avenues. Remember #HistoryMatters and we are all in this together. Stay safe & healthy and we hope to see you later this summer!
