You have said out loud just those things I tried to correct when the former curator resigned, but was "shot down" by the Board of Trustees when trying to hire a curator with experience. I have discussed with members of a civic organization to which I belong about it taking over the management of the museum, but the members will only consider it if the city gives the organization full control. It looks like no one wants to work with the city on anything. Some of the members of this civic organization have indicated they would be happy to volunteer their time, but are hesitant to work with the current curator.

I believe very much in the museum and have called the state historical society about what type of help they could offer and there was classes on restoration and maintenance of artifacts. Also, grant money was more readily available since the museum is also a library.

I will do whatever I can to help. I would be happy to look into the type of grants and services are available, but I am not a grant writer. I would be happy to revisit the management of the museum with the members of the above mentioned civic organization if you think that would help.

So nice to hear some logic and reason still exists in our community. Good to know people are interested in saving this wonderful place!
