Museum receives artifact donations
Saturday, June 20, 2015 — The Westwood Museum received a collection of arrowheads and beads from the estate of Linda Gwynn, which is now displayed in the exhibit depicting the history of Native Americans in the region.
Sheri Binswanger reported the donation during the meeting of the board of directors for Westwood Museum Inc. on Tuesday, June 9. She also reported the museum had received three new memberships as support for the nonprofit continues to grow.
Treasurer Paula Dante reported the bank balance at $8,181.52 with most of the June invoices paid. At the May meeting the board finalized a budget, calculating annual expenses at $6,800, which includes rent, utilities, the alarm system and insurance. The board’s goal is to make sure they always have funds to cover operating costs. To meet this goal several fundraising events have been scheduled throughout the year.
