A Big Thank You!
A big thank you to the Coquille Indian Tribe Community Fund for a $5,000 grant to help offset museum admission fees for Veterans in 2018. This grant complements the $5,000 grant we received from the Mr. & Mrs. Michael L. Keiser Foundation. Thru December 30, Veterans and their spouse (if they visit the museum together) receive FREE admission to see the exhibits. 2018 will showcase 4 special exhibits that focus on Veterans. Check out the calendar of events on our website for more information: www.cooshistory.org.Pictured here from L to R: CIT Tribal Chair Brenda Meade, CHM Executive Director Susan Tissot, CIT Community Fund Committee Member Denny Hunter.
