Community invited to celebrate Milwaukie's history at local museum

In the spirit of celebrating Milwaukie’s history and the museum that chronicles it, Milwaukie Mayor Jeremy Ferguson and Milwaukie Rules blogger Mandy Zelinka Anderson have combined forces to put on an event to raise money for the Milwaukie Museum. On Saturday, Nov. 3, people are invited to enjoy coffee, doughnuts and the city’s rich history starting at noon at the museum. Longtime Milwaukie resident Bob Hatz will also be honored at the event. Born in 1918, Hatz grew up around Kellogg Lake and served on the city’s Citizen Utility Advisory Board from 1996 until 2012. A $5 per person donation is suggested. The Milwaukie Museum is at 3737 S.E. Adams St. in what was once the GeorgeWise family farmhouse, built in 1865. The museum, run by members of the Milwaukie Historical Society, is open Saturdays and Sundays from 1-5 p.m. and admission is free. -- Victoria Edwards OregonLive
