Changes and additions continue to be made to the steamboat New Orleans model exhibit. Mr. Lowell Ford (maker of the model) made a visit to the museum from his home in California with a new gift. He presented us with another steam engine and boiler that he had built for display beside the original boat so that people could better see and understand the working of steam power. We wish to thank Lowell and his family for all that they have done for the museum.

Several months ago, the Syfy Channel came to our area and made a film entitled Ghost Shark. Numerous scenes were filmed at the museum, cottage and the dock. It’s now going
to be on TV on August 22 at 8:00pm on the Syfy Channel. For those who have Charter it’s channel 63 and for Dish, channel 122.
The cable channel’s official description is: “A great white shark is tortured and killed by a fisherman, then returns from the dead, exacting vengeance on all humans. When Ava’s
(Mackenzie Rosman/’7th Heaven’) father is brutally murdered, no one believes that the ghost shark got him –- except the crazy lighthouse keeper Finch (Richard Moll/’Night
Court’). Ava and her friends take the problem into their own hands as they desperately try to survive the bloody wrath of the ghost shark.”
