The Pony Express Museum is preparing for its 21st year of sponsoring Tuesday Night Talks. The program has become a popular and educational event in the community in January and February each year.

Joseph K. Houts, Jr., TNT Chairman stated, “As we enter the third decade of the TNT series, we hope everyone continues to enjoy the speakers and topics we have lined up for this year”.

Cindy Daffron, Executive Director stated, “Last year’s winter weather was harsh, forcing many cancellations due to speakers not being able to travel the highways or our local weather being too treacherous for TNT patrons to venture out. The 2020 talks will give those in attendance a chance to hear authors, historians, and lecturers on a wide range of topics”.

Admission is free and light refreshments are served. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and speakers begin at 7 p.m. The museum’s social time is warm and inviting. What better place to be on a cold Tuesday night? You’re sure to see a familiar face and make new friends!
