CHILDS — Matt Ballard is looking forward to his second year as director of the Cobblestone Museum.
He will be sole owner of the position, after co-director Sarah Karas announced her resignation this month.
Although the museum is closed for the winter, Ballard is busy planning special events for the 2015 season, which begins in May.
His desire is to make the Cobblestone Museum more visible and involve the community will begin with a permanent/traveling exhibit in collaboration with the Clarendon and Medina Historical societies.
The exhibit, funded by a $2,000 grant from GO ART!, will feature Orleans County’s involvement in World War I.
“The contributions Orleans County made to World War I have kind of been forgotten,” Ballard said.
