PRESIDENT JOE’S PAGE................

Our museum addition is now reaching the final stages of construction.  Finished is the dry wall and taping work as well as the wall painting.  The heating and cooling units are being put in place this week.  Floor coverings are next and should be completed in about 3 weeks at which time we will begin the job of setting up new displays in the new areas made available by the construction.  We plan to have an open house next spring but we have a lot of work to do before then.  We have had extra expenses, especially the cost of a new roof for the old building.  So our capital campaign for the building program is ongoing.  If you would like to help us with the financing of the new museum building we would very much appreciate donations of any size.  Donations can be mailed to:

       Miller County Building Fund

A few weeks ago we hosted the Miller County Museum display at the Art and Ambiance Trail exhibition at Stone Crest Mall.  It was an enjoyable time to have the opportunity to speak with those who stopped by to chat.  On display were many items including the quilts we have for raffle later this year.  Coming up the weekend of Saturday, September 8, is our classic car show produced by Jack Lupardus who himself has a classic Cadillac convertible.  I will report on this page next quarter more details about the car show and the events for those who don’t make it to attend in person.


Our website ( is growing in size and content each week under the direction of museum director, Nancy Thompson.  I certainly recommend to all who have internet access to visit our website.  You will find more interesting articles about Miller County history there than any other source of which I am aware.  Although our museum will close after the car show on September 8, you can still keep informed with what we are doing at the museum by keeping in touch with our website which is revised and updated every week.
