September 24, 2017.  Antique Appraisal Fair 

Whether you have a family heirloom or an item purchased at a sale, our expert 

appraiser, Fred Fleming of Aardvark Antiques in Lake Orion, will provide you with 

the opportunity to spend some time with an expert and learn not only the 

background of your item, but also its value.  The cost is $5.00 per item, and you 

may bring as many items as you wish.  If it is determined an item is of little value, 

Mr. Fleming may waive the fee.  The museum will also be open for tours.

October 29,2017.  Public Spirit Gallery

Internationally known psychic medium, Lisa Bousson, will connect with the world of 

spirit, bringing through ancestors and loved ones at our Public Spirit Gallery.  The 

purpose of a public medium demonstration is to open people’s minds to the 

possibility of an afterlife and proof that spirit communication is indeed possible. Not 

only is there a good possibility of receiving a message from a loved one in spirit, but 

it's also a good way to introduce yourself to the work of an Evidential Spiritual 

Medium. Your ancestors want to talk to you as much as you want to talk to them!

Washington Historical Museum – 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
