Everything has been going well with the museum. We had a good year last year. We are using the whole building now.
We are still working on the research library. P.J. Schiller built some upper cabinets. They are very nice. We now need to organize the materials we have. We had such a busy winter; we haven’t been able to get much done, but the facility can be used.
We did some landscaping last year. It is looking really good. Some volunteers started cleaning and organizing the buildings and displays outside. We hope to finish this year. The old kitchen and serving area in the Depot were set up with different displays. Some things were moved around. You will have to come and check it out.
We would like to thank everyone for their generous donations, and we would like to thank everyone who has helped with the building projects and fundraisers. The community support has been awesome.
We still need to install a furnace and air conditioning in the new building. We have decided to install a new roof on the Depot first. We hope to have the new roof on before Meet Your Neighbor Day. The new roof will cost approximately $12,000.
We hope that you will continue to support the museum and donate to have this done.
We encourage people to get involved with our Museum. We need active members. Please remember, we are looking for family histories, and pictures of families of the local area. We have been receiving some histories and pictures. Thank you for all your donations. We hope everyone will continue to support our museum. Thank you.
