Our opening day visitors listened intently as the resolution honoring Raymon Thacker
was read by President Edson.
After the program concluded, our visitors enjoyed reminiscing about Raymon Thacker as they sampled the lovely refreshments and toured the Museum's current exhibit, "Where the River
Bends, Scottsville on the James."
