The Beginning of a Dream Come True!
The vote is in! We're moving to a permanent place. We've committed ourselves to building serious support for our community history museum dream. Can we sustain it? Can we build a cadre of volunteers and sponsors, gather our community's stories which are fading with the older generation, sufficiently communicate that there is something--visual & virtual--worth visiting and supporting at our museum?
We think we can. We need your support. Join us and help us!
The boxes are packed. The shelves are empty and moved. Now the job of organizing the new space begins. We could always use help. We have so many events planned and we're very anxious to get started. We will host an "Open House" on Saturday, June 15th from 10:00 to 2:00 for everyone to come and see our new space. Keep coming to this web page to see pictures of the progress...
