“Last Monday” at Versailles Area Museum will Celebrate Russia

On June 27th the Versailles Area Museum will welcome our good neighbors to the east and all our friends from Russia. This afternoon will be an exciting chance for old friends to gather and share their memories of the village of Russia.

As part of what is known as “The French Crescent” the early families of the parishes of Holy Family, St. Valbert, and St. Remy this area grew and flourished with the influx of French emigrants. Today their successful descendents live and thrive in this area!

Come and share about Parish life, school events, the famous Russia Homecoming. Or perhaps you played of one of their famous Baseball or Softball teams or the League Champs of the Shelby County League in Basketball? ?Maybe you have memories of the Russia Inn or Shep’s Golden Lantern? Come and share the stories and relive the happy memories of living in Russia.

The program begins at 1:00 and your encouraged to bring your pictures and your stories with you. The museum will be open for tours and one of our newest displays will feature the great American Bicycle!

Also refreshments are provided so you can enjoy your time reminiscing together. Share the news and we will look forward to welcoming a great group for June’s last Monday!
