MISSING CHATAQUA?: Exhibit will be held at Walt Goodman Historical Museum

(PRESS RELEASE/Walt Goodman Historical Museum)

The Chataqua Parade will not happen this year but you can still relieve the memories this weekend at the Walt Goodman Historical Museum in Chewelah.

Missing Chataqua? So are the volunteers at the Walt Goodman Historical Museum.

They’re missing an opportunity to show off a collection of photos that were donated to the museum last year, so they’ve put together an outdoor Chataqua display. It will be available for viewing, in front of the museum, Friday, July 10 and Saturday, July 11 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.

You might be able to help identify some of the people in the photos. The photos were taken by a local photographer, Clint Harris. Also on display will be a quilt depicting Chewelah’s history. This quilt was raffled off at a past Chataqua, and the owner graciously donated it to the museum.

Bring your family for a small trip down Chataqua’s memory lane. To keep us all practicing social distancing, the individual displays will be set on easels 6 feet apart. Please wear a mask when you go to view the displays.

The Walt Goodman Historical Museum is next to the Chewelah Bowling Center and the Chewelah Center for the Performing Arts.
