A local businessman and glass and pottery collector brought examples of that collection to this past week’s Memories Day at the Riverbank Historical Museum.
The Thursday morning event drew a dozen members of the Historical Society, which staffs and operates the museum.
Will Hecht, owner of the Heck of a Deal Discount Shop in Escalon, presented a program on pottery and glass favored by collectors.
He brought several examples from his collection of different styles, artists and manufacturers to show.
The historical society will take a break from Memories Day programs through the summer, with a scheduled return of both the presentations and general membership meetings in September.
Volunteers from the Riverbank Historical Society open the museum from 10 a.m. to noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
The museum is located at 3237 Santa Fe Street in downtown Riverbank, next to City Hall North on Third Street.
