Cassie Miles Exe Dir, and two board members, Heidi Everett and Buddy King spoke to our members about the fundraising efforts and what is happening in the museum. The museum has had some soft openings where they  rented  some displays from the Children's Museum in St Paul.  It was very well received  Now they are tearing down ceiling and walls to make room for  many of the planned displays. Thanks to many area business that have sponsored a room.
