Overview

Self-reported by organization

WE'VE DONE A GREAT DEAL OF MAINTENANCE AND UPKEEP ON THE BUILDING THIS YEAR INCLUDING PAINTING, LIGHTING, REFINISHING THE ORIGINAL 1935 WOOD FLOOR.  HAVE ALSO UPDATED SIGNAGE AND ADDED SOME NEW CASES IN MUSEUM.  WE HAVE ALWAYS "OPERATED IN THE BLACK" DESPITE THE ECONOMIC DOWNTURN AND WE ARE WORKING HARD TO CONTINUE THAT GOOD RECORD!
