Sports exhibit hits home for athletes, fans alike

Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America” – a collaboration among the Smithsonian Institution, the World of Little League Museum and Penn College – kicked off a 10-week local engagement Sunday with a public reception on the first floor of Madigan Library. The engaging showcase is part of the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street program, which enlists rural partners in hosting traveling exhibits. In addition to items reflecting the pervasive influence that athletics has on American society, “Hometown Teams” aptly includes representative pieces from collections within the community, some of which have never been displayed publicity. Members of the Historical Organizations of Lycoming County, schools, individuals and groups are among those lending artifacts for the exhibit, which runs through Sept. 8. Among those attending the official opening was Morgan Parrish, reporter for WBRE/WYOU, whose coverage aired during Sunday evening’s newscasts.
