2018 Connecticut League of History Organizations Conference External Event Page
New Britain, Connecticut
Venue: This year's conference will be at our new home, Central Connecticut State University, located at 161
Offering Fresh Perspectives on Age-Old Issues: The Annual CLHO conference attracts more than 200 museum professionals, board members and volunteers representing the over 400 history museums, historical societies, historic sites, historic house museums, libraries, and archives in Connecticut. This full-day conference offers an Exhibitor and Vendor Hall, the Award of Merit Luncheon and Awards presentation, and opportunities for networking with people just like you. What is the role that history organizations play in getting the “truth" out there, and preserving today’s truths for the future? Do your labels, docents, AND programs offer truth to your audience, and, whose truth is it? Have you ever come across an unbreakable mystery – or myth – in your organization? Did it hold you or your organization back? What assumptions do you have about your visitors, your board, your finances, or your collections that close doors on new opportunities? Do you have a history mystery, professional skill, or trick of the trade that you’d like to share? Get ready to debunk some of the issues and challenges of the past – and jumpstart your future! With insight from our colleagues, we hope to turn “can’t do,” “won’t work,” “why try” - into “can do,” “will work,” and “let’s go” practices.

Civil War Lecture: The Battle of Wassaw Sound External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
Venue: The Mariners' Museum, Anna Room
The battle of Wassaw Sound pitted the Confederate ironclad ram, CSS Atlanta, against two Passaic-class ironclad monitors, USS Weehawken and USS Nahant. The Atlanta, built using the hull and engines of the blockade runner, Fingal, was one of the best constructed Confederate ironclads with a speed of 7 knots. On 17 June 1863, in a bay in present-day Georgia, Wassaw Sound, the ram attacked the two Union monitors. Unfortunately, the Atlanta ran aground due to its deep draft of 16 feet and after sustaining significant damage by five shots from the Weehawken, the Confederate ship surrendered. Captain John Rodgers, commander of Weehawken, became a national hero and received the thanks of Congress for his leadership role in the capture of the CSS Atlanta. This surrender was the first Confederate ironclad to be captured by US naval forces.
Free with Museum admission, $13.95 for adults and $12.95 for seniors.

The Delta: The Way It Was External Event Page

Sailor Made Exhibition External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
This new exhibition features more than 60 items made by sailors or artisans at sea. For centuries, sailors have used their leisure time to create objects and artworks that document life at sea, commemorate historic events or simply celebrate the extraordinary skill of the maker. Scrimshaw ? carved or engraved whale ivory or walrus tusks, made by whalers ? is one of the most well-known, sailor-made arts. Over hundreds of years, many began additional hobbies using materials they had on hand to fill their time while traveling the oceans. Visitors to the exhibition will see works of art, scrimshaw, and decorative knotwork, commemorative and household items that will provide a glimpse into the daily lives of those who made their livelihoods on the sea.
Free with Museum admission.

To MyPlate and Beyond External Event Page
Montezuma, Kansas
Visitors of all ages will get a full serving of helpful, practical advice on how to plan healthy meals when they go through a new Purdue Extension exhibit on display at the Stauth Memorial Museum from March 11, 2018 through May 27, 2018. ///// The exhibit "To MyPlate and Beyond" illustrates the U.S. Department of Agriculture's tool that emphasizes the five food groups that are part of a healthy diet: fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins, and dairy. ///// "Visitors will learn how easy it is to shop for food, grow their own, plan meals, and eat together," said Lisa Graves, Extension specialist in the College of Health and Human Sciences' Department of Nutrition Science. "From child to adult, the exhibit will feature tips and ideas for everyone to build a healthy plate." ///// Participants will "travel" with seven-year-old Max and his dog, Munch, in a flying saucer as they explore simple reminders and other information about eating well. Included are hands-on interactive games that help visitors understand the exhibit's key messages, such as make half of your plate fruits and vegetables, switch to fat-free or low-fat milk, and enjoy your food but eat less. ///// Max & Munch first visit a very cool supermarket and run around to the five areas of MyPlate - fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins, and dairy - each featuring fun hands-on activities. Next stop, a community garden where Max learns that even in an urban setting you can use large containers to grow vegetables in your backyard or on your balcony. From there they spy drive-thru and sit down restaurants: these areas encourage family conversation about making healthy choices when eating out. And for some exercise Max and Munch try their turn on the "Hot Plate" to see what they've learned on their journey so far. ///// What's on MyPlate?, a video from Purdue University will accompany the exhibit. It provides practical, everyday examples of how to follow the United States Department of Agriculture's MyPlate nutritional guidelines. Appx. 36 min. ///// The Purdue Ag

As museums continue to explore new ways to engage communities in conversations that bridge cross-cultural boundaries, they also help bring acceptance of differences of opinion, create stronger cross-cultural collaborations with tribal groups and under-served communities, and combine multi-disciplinary approaches to interpreting cultural heritage, science, and art.
