Despite the injection of much-needed cash by a recent donation in memory of the late Helen Hall, the museum stills needs community support. Several events are being offered this week to offer citizens an opportunity to show their support.
THERE’S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL – Friday, April 16th at 7PM
The museum has invited Paul Rogers, SMU professor and baseball aficionado, to speak about the humor of famous baseballer’s like Lefty Gomez, Flint Rhem, Babe Ruth, Dizzy Dean, Yogi Berra and others.
Tickets for this event are $7.50 for one child, $10 for one adult, $15 for two, and $20 for a family of four (two adults, two children). You can purchase tickets in the online gift shop or at the North Texas History Center.

COLLECTING THE CIVIL WAR – Saturday, April 17th at 2 PM

OTHER OPTIONS TO SUPPORT THE MUSEUM
Attention KROGER Shoppers … The North Texas History Center is an eligible charity in the Neighbor to Neighbor Donation Program. Kroger donates $1 million annually to participating organizations. Each organization will earn a portion equal to the percentage of total earned contributions attributable to that organization. To participate, print off this letter and take it to Kroger’s the next time you go shopping. If that link doesn’t work for some reason, or if you want more information on this program, see Kroger’s Neighbor to Neighbor site.
Donate $1 Program … If every person in Collin County donated a single dollar, they would have enough to keep the doors open for 3 years. They have added the option to donate a single dollar in the on-line gift shop (click here).
Memberships & Open Donations … The North Texas History Center can also accept donations for any amount on their Donations & Membership page or you can become a member for as little as $25 (click here).
