Recent city council directions required us to make 18 needed repairs and gave us only ten days to complete and WE DID IT with 200 volunteers working in above 100 degree heat.
HOWEVER, NOW WE HAVE TO DO A STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS OF THE MUSEUM with a qualified engineer. The cost is currently $30,000 for this evaluation. This made our hearts drop. If we don’t do this, the city will call the nonprofit in breach and cancel the lease.
No donation is too small. A dollar gets us a dollar closer. An Emmy nominated producer called and said she will match each $1000 that is put in by a donator. Please those fortunate people with ready funds, your $1000 will double and will mean so much more!
We need your help because this is a beautiful old 1905 building and the last remaining museum in the city of Hanford and in Kings county. Weddings, quinceneras, bridal showers, baby showers, proms, senior citizen writing group, Pokemon Club, school tours with actors portraying Andrew Carnegie and Emilia Earhart--giving history lessons to students, retirement parties, plays, concerts, Elvis show, Improv, stand-up comedy shows, and courtesy memorial celebrations have taken place here as a community service. We do as many fundraisers as we can think of to help supplement our expenses to keep the museum open! Now we need the biggest help ever from EVERYONE.
Any dollar donation will help!
Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to a lot of people. Including how we love the articles left to us by AMELIA EARHART who visited Hanford quite frequently.
