Updates

Regular maintenance and repairs of our buildings will continue for the foreseeable future until such a time as we can raise the necessary money to begin major renovations to our museum buildings. A government grant to conduct some foundation repairs to the recreation hall building is being investigated.

Our office will be relocating to the ground floor of the Northern Frontier’s Visitors Center as of September 1st. We now have 14 corporate members, and would like to thank them for their generous support. We would also like to thank members who staffed the society’s table at the Airshow this year.
