  1. Thanks so much for the postcard concerning the Christmas display at the Arms Museum. My most precious (and only surviving) Christmas ornament of my childhood (I’m 62 now) is a Twinkler heat motion ornament. Little did I know the inventor was from our area. How exciting!. You can be sure, I will not miss the exhibit.
    Thanks again for the info!
    Rick
