Community Steps Up to Help Museum

Wow! The citizens of Union County have shown they appreciate the Union County Museum in a big way. Our request to you for assistance to repair the roof of the museum where it was damaged in the hail and rain storms in August has been very successful. First, the Union County Commission came through with a grant from the Union County Discretionary Fund (a County grant program funded with local transient lodging taxes) to help pay for the new roof. Then, our letters to museum society members and other county residents brought enough donations to repair the interior ceiling and start rebuilding our emergency facility fund.

We thank everyone who helped with this effort. Please visit the museum when we open for the season next Mother’s Day, and return with friends throughout the 2014 season. If you haven’t visited for a while, you will be amazed by the quality of the exhibits and the depth of the collection. If you aren’t yet a member, please consider joining so we can keep you informed of museum news and activities. We are planning some fun events and hope to see you next season!
