April Update

What’s Happening!

As mentioned in earlier blogs.  Our Advisory Committee was busy in February and March raising funds for the new building, securing a location, receiving estimates, pursuing grants, updating our website, exploring other museums, and putting together a presentation to visit with groups about the success of the pilot museum and our plans moving forward.

On the road again!

We are excited to announce that we plan on being on the road and attending fun events around the area.  If you plan on going to Centrailia College Fun Fest on April 18th at 10 am, we will also be there!  We are currently organizing to have a staff person that will be able to attend these events, as well as have a trailer that can be used to transport mobile exhibits to each destination.  We are excited to bring you more news and pictures as it develops!

Since we know that our future success will be strongly dependent on location.  We knew that we would have to pick the right spot and space.  After much searching, we concluded that in order to find an area that met all requirements, we  would best suit those needs by building.  One big benefit to this, is that we can design the facility to have all the areas we dreamed of!  Such as exhibit floor, administrative offices, event room, gift shop, food court, and a place allocated for early education and development!

We are still in the first stage of exploring an early education program that will work for Discover!  The possibility is exciting, and we will have to make sure that we have the space available for it.  So as the months progress keep watching our updates for more news!

DSC-2628We would love to fill you in on what we’re doing!

The Discover! Board Members are excited to share what’s going on with Discover! with your group, school, daycare, or organization.  If you are interested in having us come to you for a presentation, please feel free to email us at info@discovermuseum.org

There are many other things that we went over in our meeting, but we will save them for later.  Until then, happy spring break Discover! Friends!
