We closed to renovate our beautiful historic
building. Working hard, we've accomplished over 96% of what
we needed to do to bring our 100 year old building up to City
Code! We're asking to open by Nov. 24th for the popular "Holiday
on Main Street- Festival of Trees" w/Santa & Mrs. Claus
& we need your help!
All volunteers, we receive no funding
from City, Co., State, Fed govt., or Tourism Bur. Most
people are aware of our extraordinary diligence and commitment
to this community institution during these past several months
AND years... We're now hearing comments asking "Why aren't
they still allowing you to open?" All we are asking - as
soon as we finish any renovations needed, which we've done (and
will have the other 4% done by Monday) is to be extended the
flexibility & courtesy given other organizations in the
City of Utica.
Please contact people or leaders or families or
teachers you know & ask them to request the City to extend
the courtesy they allow other City organizations by letting
us open our museum again as soon as contractor's are done, pending
City approval! Communiy children deserve it!
