As many of you know, the square’s museum (The North Texas History Center) had its budget from the County cut severely this past August and its survival on its remaining funds is tenuous at best. Though fundraisers are scheduled for late March, it is critical that the museum either find a way to have its funding restored or find a sponsor or other means of keeping the doors open. The funding cut may have caught them by surprise but not without a plan. However, they need time to see the fruition of their plan and they need funds to make it until then.
In an effort to let people know the extent of the threat to the museum, an old-fashioned rally complete with picket signs has been scheduled for this Saturday, March the 6th, at 11 a.m in front of the museum. Union and Confederate re-enactors from across four different counties will be on hand in uniform to help support the cause and lend color to the museum’s current Civil War exhibit. Supporters are planning to march through the downtown square with signs in hand.
The museum strongly encourages anyone and everyone to come down and join the rally.
I strongly encourage everyone with a camera to take it with you! (And then tell us where you posted the pictures!)
