Guest Column: Season of growth for Florida Agricultural Museum
Kara Hoblick, Interim Executive Director
Florida Agricultural Museum
Special to Historic City News
The sultry days of summer are with us once again at the Florida Agricultural Museum. Our annual summer riding camps and Fun On the Farm camps have been filled for the season.
During August, we are gearing up for our Fall programs; including Smithsonian Museum Magazine Day on September 24, the Pellicer Creek Raid Civil War Re-enactment scheduled for October 7 through October 9, and Florida’s Haunted Trails Halloween Celebration which will take place on the evenings of October 21, 22, 28, and 29.
As we all know, summer is the season of growth. The metaphor of summer is especially relevant at the Florida Agricultural Museum this year, as the Board of Trustees works to find its next Executive Director. The Board is conducting reviews looking for a small handful of finalists for the position, and we are all excited by the upcoming influx of new ideas, new perspectives, and new leadership.
Great things are on the horizon for the Florida Agricultural Museum, and we are looking forward to a new season that will bring new life to a blossoming facility.
In closing, I’d like to extend a sincere “thank you” to the many members, visitors, volunteers, trustees, and staff that continue to make the Florida Agricultural Museum a truly special place.
