    After months of planning, collecting and arranging, the Village of Paw Paw’s Historical Commission and Paw Paw District Library hosted a grand opening of their inaugural exhibit at the Carnegie Community Center last Sunday afternoon. “Past Times in Paw Paw: A History of Baseball in Our Hometown” featured displays of artifacts, both found and shared, for the community’s viewing.  “Ol’ Paw Paw” Charlie Maxwell was an honored guest, chatting with friends and fans, who lined up to have him sign baseballs, bats, shirts, trading cards, and more. The event was highlighted by a ceremonial ribbon cutting to “open” the museum.  The display is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through September 8.
