The museum will be displaying a Hurricane Michael Project in October 2020.

They want to hear from members of the community about their personal experiences during and after the storm. They'll select 10 to 12 submissions to be displayed.

Museum volunteers said the goal of this project is to look at how the hurricane impacted our community and showcase our resiliency.

"We are looking for people to submit answers, it's just a little one-page brief that's on our website, or you can call the museum or go by the museum, or get it on Facebook, just fill out the form, brief answers, you don't have to be a writer, and send that in," said Nancy Hudson, a volunteer with the museum.

And back by popular demand at the museum, Lillian's Letters display. The letters are between Lillian Carlisle and George West, the former owner of Panama City Publishing Co.

"This is a portion of the collection of letters that was found about a year and a half ago, and they are love letters from Lillian Carlisle to George West. It's quite a collection, it starts out very serious and business-like and then a couple months later it's 'my darling.' It's a fabulous display, it's just a blast from the past," said Hudson.

The display was up in February 2019 and is up again for the entire month of February and a few weeks in March.
