Collectors find plenty of Laurel memories

Discover what's missing, and find out what's still here, at the Laurel Museum's new exhibit, "Lost & Found Laurel," opening with a reception on Sunday, Feb. 9 from 1 to 4 p.m.

The exhibit uses bits and pieces from familiar places and events during the last 50 years in Laurel to trigger memories of what life was like in the not-too-distant past. Using items collected from now-gone shops, schools and restaurants; together with souvenirs from celebrations and events, the exhibit tells the story of where Laurel's been, where it's going.

Author Richard Friend, whose blog Lost Laurel inspired the exhibit, will raffle off two copies of his new book, "Lost Laurel: The Book," during the opening reception.

The exhibit runs through Dec. 21.

The Laurel Museum, 817 Main St., is open Wednesdays and Fridays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Sundays 1 to 4 p.m. Contact or 301-725-7975.
