2012 Fundraiser Dinner

We were overwhelmed by the support shown for the Museum’s 2012 Fundraiser Dinner.  We sold out.  Tons of donations for door prizes, silent auction, not to mention all the contributors of photos, stories and time.  It was the perfect weather for a hot turkey dinner.  The meal was held at the Montague Curling Club, put on by the Lion’s Club. The food was awesome! Hughie Graham did a fantastic presentation on “Sports and People who lived the Dream”.  Our guest speaker Larry Resnitsky delivered a wonderful talk about his days of co hosting the Radio sports show “Sports Rap” with Postie Connolly.  Looking forward to next years event already.  Thanks to everyone involved.

Big Last Week

Our last week open to the public was fantastic.  When tourists come in this late in the season we really get to have fun with them on tour because we’re not as busy which gives us more time.  People still get shocked at how much we’ve done with the building.  The three floors of exhibits make the entrance fee of only $3 great value.

We were pleased to host two school class tours our last week as well.  Around 47 children in total.  The children had a tour of the Museum, they all got to wear special white gloves and handle an arrowhead, and then they got to research their last name in the Resource Center.  As you can see from the photo they were VERY interested in finding family members.  We hope to get more school tours in the future.  Educational Programming is a very important aspect of work at the Museum.  

On behalf of the Garden of the Gulf Museum Board Members and Staff thank you to everyone who made our 2012 Season a very memorable one.  We look forward to seeing you next year.   – Connie Spencer- Assistant Curator –
