Sunnyside Parks and Recreation Board chairperson Dorothy Aiken admires one of the military uniform exhibits now on display at the Sunnyside Museum. This exhibit includes part of an uniform worn by her father, Willard Ross Snyder, who served in the U.S. Navy during World War I. The parks and rec board held its Wednesday meeting at the museum followed by a tour of new exhibits and latest amenities recently added to the city’s historic treasure house.
Sunnyside Museum now boasts a new and expanded restroom facility, which meets ADA requirements. Here, park and rec board student representative Jackie Kranz points out the improvements to Megan Razey (R), city recreation coordinator.
Sunnyside Parks and Recreation Board member Bob Sarmiento examines copies of Sunnyside High School yearbooks along side of Jacqueline Renteria. The yearbooks are among the many interesting documents which are a part of the museum’s library.
Museum volunteers have spent many hours cleaning and resetting the Sunnyside Museum’s many displays, which depict life as it was in the early days of Sunnyside.
Does anyone know how to operate this elegant old cash register, seems the question posed by Jacqueline Renteria. The silver-plated cash register is one of the many treasures now on display at the museum.
Once known as the Ball Mortuary, the Sunnyside Museum retains its graceful presence in the community. This past summer, a wheelchair ramp was added to the east side of the building, designed in a style keeping with the original design of the building. The museum is open Thursday through Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m.
