Albany - Bobs Candies donates a piece of its history to Thronateeska. The 1927 Brass Model-T Delivery Truck is now on display at the museum.

"In the next month or so, we're going to develop an exhibit around the truck and Bobs Candies. Also, we're also moving the Don Fisher Santa Claus collection that was out at the Bobs Candies store. It will be opening up in the next couple months too," said Thronateeska Executive Director Tommy Gregors.

The McCormack family sold Bobs Candies in April to a Minnesota candy company, Farley and Sathers.
