On Saturday, Sept. 4, the Floral City Heritage Museum opened for the first time since closing in March 2020 due to the pandemic. 

Janie Stewart and Bob Metz were volunteer docents for the day at the museum and greeted many curious visitors. Among those visiting that day included a neighborhood social group from The Villages.
