MuseNews – 2022 Events Diary

By 30th December 2021News

2022 Exhibition

The Museum will reopen at Easter and a new Exhibition for 2022 is being planned. Watch this space. Recently added the Time-Line of Dollar History and a working model of Dollar Railway Station. Please go to our Exhibitions page.

Children’s Competition – Easter 2022

Our first Children’s Competition was held at Easter 2021, with two prize winners. We are holding another competition this year. Rumour has it that it will involve decorating a small stone. So be on the lookout for a nice stone and keep watching this space for more details.

Annual Outing

Our Annual Outings have been postponed due to the covid pandemic – and at present it would not be practical to organise a bus trip. We are thinking about possibly going to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow and this will be kept on the calendar for Spring of 2023.

Dollar Gala- June 2022

Hopefully, the Dollar Gala will go ahead this year on June 4th. If it does, then the Museum will be there too!

Annual Strawberry Tea – July 2022

Our summer event is usually held on an afternoon in July, from 2.30pm – 4.00pm in the Burnside Hall. We usually have a number of stalls selling baking, books and items from our Museum Shop. We hope this can go ahead this year.

 

Dollar Historic Walk – September 2022

Last year we held walks as part of the Doors Open Days 2021 in Clackmannanshire event. It was a great success with groups of people joining us on a guided walk round Dollar – viewing places of historic interest.  We hope to be able to run this event again this year. We gather in front of the Museum for a 2.00 pm start on both Saturday and Sunday. (Dates to be arranged)

 

October – A.G.M.

We have held virtual meetings on Zoom for the last two years. Will the AGM for 2022 be a face-to-face meeting or virtual? Arrangements will be notified to Friends in advance of our 2021 AGM which will be held in October, 2022.

November – Book Sale

We will again hold our very popular Annual Book Sale at the Museum in November.  Nearer the time we will be happy to accept well-read books or even mint unopened copies – and you can come and get your reading material for this winter. See our page.

November – Quiz Night

Looking forward – our Quiz Night used to be a fixture in our calendar.  A popular event for teams up to six people.  Usually – tickets include supper, and refreshments are available. Bring along your friends and enjoy the evening.  Venue: Academy Dining Hall, starts 7.30pm. Hope we can do this in 2022.

December  – Dollar Christmas Fair

We will be running a stall at the Dollar Annual Christmas Fair. Come along and get those special Christmas Gifts.
