Shonka takes over as museum’s curator
Amid all of the cars, games and American flags on Sunday afternoon in the historic downtown district, Theresa Shonka was all smiles watching the many people who stopped by the Schuyler/Colfax County Museum.
Sunday saw hundreds of residents and visitors pack downtown for the Schuyler Knights of Columbus’ Spring Festival, but it was also quite the showcase for the museum and Shonka, who recently took over as its curator.
“I really like history and old, antiquey stuff,” Shonka said. “So I wanted to be part of it.”
Shonka stepped in just a couple of weeks ago after the previous curator took a leave of absence for personal reasons, and Schuyler Historical Society board members are excited about their new addition.
