The Secret Gift Exhibit is closed, and the artifacts have been processed. The lucky letters and checks and year books that were chosen to be in this most touching exhibit will be stored away, and kept safe. Occasionally a visitor will come in to see a letter, we had one this morning, but for the most part these letters will not see the light of day for a long, long time. The real question is how long will they sleep. What is there future. Will someone use them in another exhibit. Will there be a revival of interest on the 100th anniversary of the 1933 ad being placed in the Canton Repository offering so much to so many. Thank you artifacts for your service to the community. How long will they Rest…
How Long Till They See Light Again…

It is always sad to see an exhibit go down and the beautiful artifacts from the past tucked away. Luckily there are wonderful organizations that house are most beloved treasures and keep them safe. It is up to these facilities to remember, cherish, and share the past. I applaud your hard work and dedication to our past.

I agree, Mark, it was a great exhibit! I think that it is one that will be remembered for a long time not just by the many visitors who viewed it, but by the staff who were involved in it’s development and the many events that were planned around it.
