We have so much to be thankful for as we end our second year. With the support of many Friends and the Meyer Memorial Trust, our organization is healthy and strong and moving forward on the development of the Capital Campaign for the Guide Dormitory and the Chateau. The Monument and the Chateau continue to sustain their growth in the number of tours and visitors and will have many innovative changes ready for you in the 2011 season, including new family events and the completion of Phase Two of the model room project.
We hope you will join us as a volunteer, a Friend or a Founder. With a contribution of $1000 or more before December 31, 2010, you will be one of only Fifty Founders who will receive special permanent recognition on the Honor Wall in the Chateau, listing in the commemoration materials and invitation to special events. This is a wonderful way to honor a family member of special occasion.
Please remember to share your stories and memories of your time at the Oregon Caves National Monument.
In other news…
In 2010, we received a grant from the Oregon Cultural Trust to begin the conservation and restoration of the historic collection of Monterey Furniture. That grant was matched by funding from the National Park Service and a contractor has now been engaged to begin the work on the first 20 pieces.
We are very pleased with the support of our newly convened Leadership Advisory Board. These individuals bring a great deal of talent, varied and broad experience.
Many individuals are beginning to donate pieces of Monterey Furniture that have been in their family to help us fill out the Chateau’s collection. We are planning a display of these donations in the Portland area in 2011.
Friends, former staff and visitors are sharing stories, photos, memories, treasures and donations of every amount to assure the legacy of the Oregon Caves National Monument will be here for future generations. We had a wonderful time at the First Thursday event at the Pendleton Home store in November and welcome your ideas for hosting a similar event in your community.
Please join the excitement of establishing a living legacy!
