It has been quite a month trying to get contractors to get us a bid for the work to be done on the tool shed. Finally, we got them, and Sharon was able to get the grant done on time.
Admissions have picked up nicely, last Saturday the Rotary group had their State convention in our town and Barrie Mathews encouraged them to come see the museum in their down time and boy did they. About 60 came. I have written Berrie a thank you.
Donations were: a canning pot given by Floyd Hoover, The regular saddle and side saddle of the Wilson family and $150.00 cash donation by Wally and Judy Bowers.
Deloris Cameron and Sharon Moore deep cleaned Miles Town and Sharon has placed a typed history by each business. It really looks sharp in there. Then the retired teachers came and cleaned the schoolhouse inside and out.
There was a problem with the water sprinklers and Wiley has been working to repair it as a new system would cast about $600. Then he will replace any sprinkler heads that are needed.
We had 190 second graders and 16 adults from the the 3 grade schools in today. There are at least 2 more groups coming sometime this summer.
There are 2 dates you should be aware of and they are June 21 we have a book signing for Todd Harburn and his book is A Life Cut Short at the Little Big Horn and it will be over the noon hour. Our fund raiser has been re-scheduled for June 23 rd, and I will be making courtesy calls to all who have bought tickets. So far, we have only had 1 couple ask for a refund.
Our other volunteers are: Karen Hathaway, Gary Clarke, Eileen Entsel, Ingrid Brown, Scott Tally, Janet Kline, Verna Viall and Grant Miller.
Since last month we have had 5 functions for a total of 20 and 32 more till the end of the year.
