Selected articles from previous issues
For 2012, we have set a new membership record - reaching 1,122 members, which is the 10th time in 11 years that we have broken that record. In 2001, we had only 395 members; now we have members from 40 U.S. states and 6 foreign countries. Our dues are kept low to encourage people to join. Twenty-five percent of our members are willing and able to join at higher membership levels, which is very beneficial to our museum.
Members are also generously contributing extra donations to help fund improvements to our museum buildings. The projects we need to tackle next are to renovate the Kilian Building, install a new roof on the Peter Building, and install a sprinkler system in our Wendish courtyard garden.
If you are not already a member, consider joining! You can pay your dues by mailing a check to the museum or by clicking on the Membership tab on this website to pay via Paypal.
