Johnetta from Finney County Museum is here on Friday to share what’s new and what’s news at Finney County Museum. After Johnetta finishes, stick around for a delicious watermelon feed. You will not want to miss donuts and coffee on Sept. 30. Help us bring back our monthly breakfast on Thursday, Sept. 24 at 8:30 a.m. We will be serving biscuits and gravy.
