Well, our fundraising letter has been sent out to everyone in the county and to our out of area members. We are really good at museum stuff, but not so great at asking for money, so we hope that everyone is generous, so we can get our buildings repaired.
The museum is open – the roof has a temporary patch and while one exhibit is in disarray where the water came in, the entire gallery is open and will remain open through the winter. Once repairs to the roof and wall get underway this spring or summer, we will probably block off a part of the museum gallery, but that means we’ll get to re-design the exhibit space once we put everything back together again.
If you didn’t receive your appeal letter, or lost the return envelope, you can make a donation on-line by clicking Make a Donation to PCHS. We really appreciate your support in helping us fix our building so we can focus on what we are really good at: collecting, preserving, and sharing Pope County History.
