Museum guest speaker

The guest speaker at the Rao Musunuru MD Museum and Library in Sims Park on Sat., Apr. 13, at 1 p.m. will be Antonia Riggs Miernik, who will share her collection of fans and give interesting information about their history. Fans have been used by both men and women from the beginning of recorded history. The ancient Asians used fans to not only keep cool, but also to show their wealth and importance. Years ago young women were not free to speak to young men. The language of the fan was used to help them express themselves.

The West Pasco Historical Society presents a guest speaker once per month in the museum.
