"Museums around the world are struggling with how to reopen. We will be more than ready once the state gives us the go ahead. Your support during this prolonged closure is critically important for bridging the gap and getting us to the other side. Thank you for giving what you can." Carol Summerfield, Executive Director
"With our doors closed, we've had to forego the earned revenue on which our work depends, which means that we need your help now. While we long for our pre-Covid existence, we must go hurtling into a new era. This new era is attainable--if we work together and donate. My board is 100% invested. Are you with me? " David Forlow, President
Two years ago we had no idea that our vision of “going digital” would become the silver lining in a pandemic where access to digital resources is paramount.
Now, we’re incredibly grateful to be in a position to help educators, students, researchers, writers, historians, filmmakers, visitors and residents like you stay connected to history, learning, and community.
Until it’s safe to open our doors, your donation will help cover lost revenue and allow us to continue: ·
· Assisting local educators and students with distance learning
· Telling the story of Covid-19 in our community
· Preserving city and community records
· Providing daily, engaging online content via e-news and social media
· Offering self-guided tours and virtual opportunities for everyone to enjoy local history
Please join Larry Potash and our board in supporting the History Center during this time of transition.
