Family Day a Big Success for The Wright Museum

The Wright Museum of World War II’s annual Family Day was a roaring success, according to organizers and sponsors with 487 people in attendance, which was 41 more than last year.

“Family Day continues to be a great feature of our museum,” said Michael Culver, executive director. “It was great for adults and children alike to take advantage of the opportunity to have fun, learn, and participate in the interactive experiences provided by the Wright Museum.”

Guests were able to enjoy the Wright Museum’s unique collection of WWII vehicles and even take a ride in them throughout town. Music was provided by the New England Country Boys in addition to live animal shows from Squam Lake Natural Science Center.

“Family Day was a great success,” added Donna Hamill, administrative manager and volunteer coordinator at the Wright Museum. “Everyone was happy and the weather was great.”

Organizers and guests were not the only ones pleased with the turnout and attractions of Family Day.

“We were delighted to be a sponsor for Family Day at the Wright Museum,” said Kathy Eaton, owner of Wolfeboro Trolley Company. “Wolfeboro is a family resort where multiple generations choose to gather and share vacation experiences.”

In addition to Wolfeboro Trolley Company, other sponsors included Black’s Paper Store, NFP Insurance, and Doran Independent Insurance.

“NFP Insurance sponsors Family Day to support an event that serves as a reminder of the sacrifices and contributions made during our country’s history,” said Rebecca Morris, Commercial Lines Account Executive with NFP Insurance. “I attended the event with my family and witnessed a fabulous turnout. I was able to bring my family along for their first time to explore the museum and enjoy all the festivities.”

The Wright Museum is open daily through Oct. 31 and features more than 14,000 items on display within its exhibits from both the battlefields and home front of World War II.
