The club has given me a vote of confidence to create the FVC Museum.
The FVC Museum will be a collection of OLD pigeon memorabilia. When I say old I mean prior to 1990.
Old trophies or plaques
CSRPO Yearbooks dating back to the 1980s or earlier
Old pigeon related equipment
Old aluminum bands or other bands dated prior to the year 2000.
Old magazines or books dating back to the 1980s or earlier
Old timers & capsules
Old wicker carrying crates
Old photos of member lofts
Old photos of members
Anything club related that would preserve club & pigeon history
All these items will be on display upstairs in the FVC museum. Items would be displayed on tables, in display cases and wall hangings. Each item would have a label stating the name of the person who loaned or donated it to the FVC.
Once everything is on display photos will be taken and posted on the FVC website click the FVC Museum tab at www.snowbird.com
We are looking for OLD pigeon memorabilia from members and non-members. The key word is OLD. When I say old I mean prior to 2000. These items would be donated or loaned to the FVC.
