By on April 18, 2014 at 10:13 am

The committee in charge of planning this year’s “Hometown Teams” special Smithsonian traveling sports history exhibit and local companion piece “From Fields to Dreams” is still looking for memorabilia and artifacts from Monroe County’s illustrious sporting past.

The exhibit will run July 26-Sept. 7 at the History Museum of Monroe County in Waterloo.

The committee is collecting sports memorabilia from county sports teams and players to display in the museum.

The committee is also collecting local sports quotes and very short stories.

If you or someone you know has items you would like the committee to consider for exhibit use, call Norma Reheis at 618-514-1628 or email Sarah Deutch at
