"My Town and Yours" Thoughts and Observations of Mark Lange
Now the Hard Work Begins

Word that attendance was high over the first couple of weeks that the Red Skelton Museum of American Comedy is fantastic. The local museum focusing on Vincennes native Red Skelton and how he was instrumental in the development of American Comedy is very well done, but now the hard work begins. The museum staff and volunteers must now focus on getting people to attend, and they can't do it alone.
We all need to make sure we take the tour and invite our out of town friends to do the same. We have a tremendous number of attractions - especially for adults. The Clark Memorial and Visitors Center, the Old Cathedral, The State Historic Sites, The Harrison Home, The Indiana Military Museum, and now the Red Skelton Museum. Couple those year round attractions with the good times you and your out of town friends will share and you've got a lot of reasons to say "Visit us in Vincennes. We've got a lot to do."
