The Newbern Depot Museum has recently added some new items, which will be on display at the upcoming Depot Days event on Sept. 16th. These items include an Earl Dennison duck call, which was made by Mr. Dennison many years ago.
We also have a recording of him blowing it, and plan to have a digital player for this item ready by Depot Days. Other items include a 1912 Newbern School handbook, featuring the fact that the school only had three years of high school, and that one of the 12 high school students also appears to be teaching second grade at the same time.
Depot Days will be the next major event at the depot. Work is continuing on the schedule, and we will hopefully have a full listing in the next newsletter.
