How you can Help - The Archive Legacy Fund

Last Updated 2/14/2019

Thank you for your support!

Archive Effort Expended
Sept 1, 2017 to Aug 31, 2018.

The Archive/Legacy Fund had an increase of $19,400 for the year!

Sustaining Members and all those contributing at the Conductor’s
Club Level are over and above that. We have raised about $115,000
and incurred about $15,000 in fund raising costs with additional
donations to Lake States and C&NWHS in the last 4 years.
