    Thanks for your attention.

    PS, oh, if you were still expecting us to be moving to Hamilton, that’s one of the rugs that got yanked. After six months of discussion with the Museum, and literally days before the deal was to be finalized, the Board of the Two Rivers Historical Society told the Museum Director to refuse our donation. Apparently we accidentally applied for a grant (to pay for the move) with a ‘proprietary’ funding source.

    Maybe somebody with a press can print one of those for us. 🙂
