On New Year's Eve, we have Old Father Time to deal with, and then on New Year's Day, Baby New Year. So the aged and infirm one day, and a screaming new baby the next. See, we have our hands full and need the time off....

It's difficult for Santa to get his work done without us, so we take off a few hours here and there to assist!
We're so pleased, and grateful, that the McMahon Foundation has agreed to fund a remodel of the Louise D McMahon Hall (our meeting space) at the museum. The foundation has been a steadfast supporter of the Museum of the Great Plains since we were just a wee slip of a thing. Where would we be without them?
We'll begin the renovation sometime in February 2017, and expect to be complete by August 2017, just in time for the Oklahoma Museums Association's Annual Fall Conference, to be held in Lawton in 2017.
Not only will the Louise D McMahon Hall itself be a stunning remodel, but adjacent areas like the public restrooms and kitchen are included, too. So, if you want to go to the bathroom in a vintage, early 1960s setting, better hurry to the museum before it's too late!
From time to time, we'll post info here about what's going-on at the museum.
