This week Ken and Francie stopped the museum . They enjoyed themselves so much that they became $100 members. Ken had worked on the salvage of a salt schooner recovered off of Martha’s Vineyard in the early 1990s. Evidently, the captain had died while loading salt in Grand Turk and the crew tried to get the vessel home, unsuccessfully.
Donations such as this are very important to the museum. One of the things we are working on right now is trying to match a matching grant of $10,000 toward the development of museum programs on Providenciales. We have an ongoing campaign at the end of this year to raise $1000 memberships to meet the match. We are half way there. If you have not become a member – please do so quickly!
