The recently established Middleburg Museum Foundation “invites you to put on your dancing shoes for an evening of fun” from 7-9 p.m. Friday, April 26, at the Middleburg Community Center, in the words of Middleburg resident Eura Lewis.

The former town councilwoman has spearheaded the long push to have a museum in town, which has the strong backing of the Town Council.

Tickets are $50 in advance or $65 at the door. The evening will include a silent auction, refreshments and dancing. A percentage of the admission for the fundraiser is tax deductible. Lewis said the group’s intention is to apply for 501(c)(3) nonprofit status as part of the drive to establish a multicultural museum that will represent Middleburg’s history.

“We have an overwhelming amount of information and history to be preserved,” Lewis said.

For more information, check the website at www.themiddleburgmuseum.com or call Lewis at 540-687-5742.
