Big New$ here in Ro$eburg Â
An anonymous couple donated $500 to the Douglas County Historical Society. We here at the historical society are very thankful for the donation. Â Â Of course this goes directly into our operating fund. Â So, this is more of the much needed funds needed to restore and renovate the front porch of the Floed-Lane House.Â
We here at the society invite you to match this donation if you are so inclined. Â There are so many things that needed to bring this old House Musuem up into the space age. Â Technology is needed to bring accessions into the digital age. Â The ‘paper’ database is on yellowed, and very brittle paper. Â Photos need to be taken of each and every object. Â Scans need to be made of documents and photos. Â
We have restoration projects that are in desperate need of funding. Â One of Polly’s dresses really does need sent off to experts to be restored. Â It is a great old dress and Polly wore to one of General Joseph Lane’s swearing’s in. Â
You can specify just how your money is to be spent. Â Write on your check: “Polly’s dress” or “database upgrade”. Â If you need an idea just write the webmaster for other project ideas.
If you are considering end of the year donations please keep our organization in mind. Remember that we are a 503(c) registered non-profit organization. Â All donations are tax deductible.
