The Little Claybelt Homesteaders Museum looks forward to continuing its support and service to the community. It does this through the preservation of artifacts and histories, updating displays within the museum to delight and educate, and provides a community focus and a tourist destination.
Each summer the Museum provides summer jobs for students. Under the direction of the Board of Directors, the summer students operate the museum during our summer season. The students assist visitors, accession donated artifacts, and input data into the computer system. One of their responsibilities is to interview local seniors who have pioneer roots in our area. These stories are then published in our books. Research through our archives gives us the opportunity to publish even older accounts of life in the area. Most of the payroll money is funded through various government agencies, but a significant portion of this money still has to be raised by the Museum.
To this end, we need your support. Memberships are only one way you can show your support. Donations are another way. Support for our fund raisers, purchases from our Gift Shop, even sponsoring special exhibits, go a long way to help. Volunteers are needed in a number of areas.
Membership is an inexpensive way to help support the work of the museum. Individuals memberships are $15 annually or your whole family can join for only $25 annually. Cheques should be made out to Little Claybelt Homesteaders Museum. Many people add a modest amount to their cheque as a donation, and a receipt is issued for any donation received.
Most of all, we'd like you to visit us at the Museum. See for yourself what is happening. Admission is free, and the history is yours. Make this the year you come visit us.
Be a part of the region, a part of our history. The Little Claybelt Homesteaders Museum welcomes you.
