Our Year End Message
We have weathered the COVID Pandemic and we have produced two great exhibits this year. The first was Remembering Monticello which documented the community that existed just a few miles to the west of Winters. The second one, and the one that is currently on display, is The Wide World of Winters Sports. This exhibit is amazing with many examples of Winters athletes who went on to participate in college, professional and even Olympic level sports. . . .
. . . We have continuing obligations such as rent, utilities, and the costs that we will incur as we get ready for future exhibits. We are also working to build a Japantown marker in the area of Rotary Park. If you are willing and able to help, your tax deductible donation can be made by selecting one of the options below.
We sincerely appreciate your continued support and hope to see you at the Museum in 2023!
