A Taste of History Virtual Fundraiser
June 7-13, 2021 8am-10:45pm, 

Annually, this event comprises a large portion of our budget and for a second year we unfortunately had to cancel the event. In Spring 2020 government grants helped us through year end, but Spring 2021 we are in the same financial position without the help of grants. The goal of this fundraiser is to raise $25,000 toward collections care, exhibits and general operations. Please help us reach our goal by donating to our Fund-A-Needs and participating in our online auction. Help us keep our wagons rolling!
