Museum update 08/05/13
Monday, August 5, 2013
Rudy Garcia, Museum Project Manager, issued on August 5, 2013 the following updated information regarding the project:
We have received much community support for the museum. Mr. John Wood developed building plans and estimated a cost of $100,000 for construction. As of
August 5, 2013, we have reached 76% of our goal in donations and pledges toward the cost of construction.
We have acquired the land on Magnolia between the fire station and the city park restrooms. The Woodlake Chamber initiated the fundraising campaign with a
donation of $10,500 and the now disbanded Veterans of Foreign Wars contributed their remaining funds of $1500. The Trinity Apostolic Faith Church volunteered
cabinets and labor, an estimated value of $6,000. The cost of installing the central cooling system is estimated at $2,000; the amount has been pledged.
A local lumber company has pledged the lumber required for the project with an approximate value of $7,000. Supporters in the community continue to respond with
monetary donations and pledges.
We are excited and optimistic about the development of this community museum and we would like to recognize the generous supporters with a donors' plaque mounted on
the building. The plaque will display twenty name lines each representing a contribution of $5,000 or more, whether it is monetary, materials, or volunteer
work. Anonymous donors will of course be respected.
Friends, any amount and/or materials donated towards this project will be greatly appreciated. We would be happy to give a presentation on your time schedule
regarding the plans and goals for the Museum project.
We believe that the Museum has a significant importance for future generations to appreciate the heritage and culture that has existed throughout this area.
