Thank you to everyone who made our Open House and Silent Auction a success!

We had a HUGE turnout on Saturday and all week long. This was our most successful auction yet – raising $8,000!

We appreciate everyone who donated, bid, sponsored advertising, baked & served goodies and just stopped by to see what is new at the museum.

We are blessed to have such great community support.
