Today was a busy day around the museum, contrary to what I expected! Among all of the activity, I just want to say a big THANK YOU to board member Wayne Howard for spending several hours here today and getting some long awaited “little chores” completed here at the museum. I do appreciate your participation and eagerness in helping make this facility a great place for all to visit!
