THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
As 2013 draw to a close, it is time to take stock of the year’s many successes while looking ahead to the challenges of the New Year and to thank the many members and donors who made this success possible!
This year saw the completion of all exterior and interior restoration work on our home, the historic Gaches Mansion. For those of you who have visited the Museum this fall, you’ve seen this transformation – the work of five years, many generous donors, countless volunteer hours, and dedicated staff planning and support. Liz Theaker, our out-going Executive Director, orchestrated this huge project, and we will long be indebted for her energy, grace under pressure, and vision for the future.
However, even though all restoration work has been completed, the need for ongoing support remains: It will add an estimated increase of $10,000 – $15,000 per year to our operational budget to maintain the restored Gaches Mansion.
Please make a year-end tax deductible gift to the Museum to show your continued support for this preservation, as well as the on-going mission of the organization.
Every dollar you donate makes a difference and helps us fulfill the Museum’s mission “to collect, preserve, and exhibit local, national, and international quilts & textiles, provide an educational experience, and preserve the historic Gaches Mansion.” Gifts in any amount are welcome and greatly appreciated. Thank you for your continuing support!
Gratefully,Geoff Hamada Ako Shimozato Amy Green Board President Board Vice-President Executive Director
