    Pack a lunch and join the National Watch and Clock Museum for its Lunch "Time" presentation, Saved from the Fire: The Fechter Collection, Wednesday, June 14. Museum Director Noel Poirier will provide an up-close examination of a generous donation of historic documents to the Museum.

    Edward Fechter, the last mechanical superintendent at Hamilton Watch Co. in Lancaster, PA, saved dozens of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century engineering drawings depicting watch movements and tooling from Hamilton Watch Co., Illinois Watch Co., and Waltham Watch Co.

    The Museum invites the public to join in a casual conversation and examination of these documents. "We wanted to provide a more intimate opportunity for people to discover objects from the Museum collection, or learn about important and interesting aspects of the history of time and timekeeping. We thought a brown bag lunch would be the perfect fit," explains Museum Director Noel Poirier.

    Lunch "Time" is a complimentary educational program that will be held from 12 to 1 p.m. and will continue every other month. Future dates include August 16, October 18, and December 13.
