Tillamook Coast History Alliance
In April, 2015, a group of Tillamook County museums formed the Tillamook Coast History Alliance to help promote our venues
to the rest of the state and beyond. We are now able to post events on a calendar on the site as well as give short descriptions of what our collections have to offer.
This alliance was a direct result of the museums bonding together in a joint ticket venture
three years ago called “A Step Back in Time.” While membership is open only to organizations at this time, we encourage those
interested in history to check out our website at www.tchistoryalliance.org.
Great Speaker Series Continues -"What is
Saturday, September 19, 2015
||The Tillamook County Pioneer Museum will present another program in their Great Speaker Series entitled “What is Education For?” on September 19, 2015 at 1:00 PM. Lead by Portland State University Assistant Professor Alexander Sager, this topic is part of the Oregon Humanities’ Conversation Project series and will delve into some basic questions about the goals of education in America today. In the last fifteen years, The United States government has spent billions of dollars to finance education reforms. But we need to know how education relates to social justice, citizenship and even freedom and a better life before we move further in those reforms. Alex Sager will be leading the discussion about the role education plays in today’s society.
As Assistant Professor of Philosophy and University Studies, Alex has focused on social and political philosophy and has been instrumental in developing the PSU Philosophy Department’s Oregon High School Ethics Bowl.
Sponsored by Oregon Humanities and the Pioneer Museum’s Daisy Fund, this program is free and open to all interested participants. For more information, call 503.842.4553.
Pioneer Museum seeks Volunteers
The Tillamook County Pioneer Museum is accepting applications for volunteer work at the Pioneer Museum as well as at the Kilchis Point Interpretive Trails site in Bay City. Possible positions at the museum include front desk personnel, substitutes for the front desk, docents for tours, research, and typing and filing. Duties at the Kilchis site will be clearing trails, weeding the trailhead locations, and removing invasive plants.
“We do our best to match our volunteers to the tasks
that need to be done,” said Ruby Fry-Matson, the museum’s Volunteer
Coordinator. “We want everyone to have a positive experience and enjoy
the time spent with us. We treasure our volunteers and couldn’t run
this museum without them.”
