Did you know that there are over 63,000 households in Franklin, Oxford, Somerset, and Androscoggin counties?!

Did you know that if just a portion of the households that stand to benefit most from The Western Maine Play Museum - the ones with children and grandchildren - were to donate $25 each then we would be breaking ground today?!

Join us in becoming one of the 10,000 families that makes this dream a reality!  Please donate what you can today!  Just $25 makes you One of the 10,000.  We want to be open and having fun in 2015!

If You are One of Our 10,000, please feel free to download this badge and post in your social media to help spread the message!

Our spring has been incredibly busy and we're pleased to announce we've raised over $215,000 total! The summer grant season is upon us and we'll have several grants, large and small, going out in the months of July, August & September.

A. Murais & Sons will begin renovations of our heating and cooling system later this summer, so keep an eye out for that.

We're poised to reach our goal soon, but truly rely on the continued support of the community to get us there sooner rather than later. Please consider giving today and become One of Our 10,000 Families today. Every dollar counts, so whether you can afford $5, $25 or $500, please consider giving to us this summer! Let's get this museum open SOON!

On our wedding registry, Kat and I asked our guests to consider making a donation to the play museum (in lieu of a wedding present). Several guests took us up on this request. The donation being made tonight is the result of those contributions. Also - one of our best employees pledged to donate a day of his labor to the museum (also as a wedding gift to us). When you include his labor and the cash gifts, the total comes out to $550. We couldn't be happier to lend our support to this cause.
