Dear Friend of the Wright Museum,
Our Annual Fund campaign is now underway. Whatever position you take with the Wright Museum – a continuing supporter of the Annual Fund, a valued underwriter of a special Museum project, or one who has yet to support the mission of the Museum - this year’s Annual Fund is your opportunity to have an immediate and meaningful impact upon the variety and quality of our offerings. To support the Wright Museum is to support the Wolfeboro area – at the same time you’ll be strengthening the Museum and helping us attract visitors from near and far!
Our latest news is that Mike Culver has joined the Museum on October 1, 2013 as Executive Director. After a comprehensive search process, the Board is thrilled to welcome Mike, and his wife Gail, to Wolfeboro. Mike's extensive inter-disciplinary education background and his proven ability to lead and grow museums will help us reach a wider audience. John Warner has been a terrific Interim Executive Director, as a volunteer and board member in that role. We commend John for all that he has done to ready the Wright Museum for the arrival of Mike Culver. We also recognize Roy Ballentine for his important seven years as Chairman of the Board and for continuing as a Board Member and important contributor. Anne Blodget has transitioned into that role and she served with Bill Glavin, Roy Ballentine and John Warner on the Search Committee for our new Executive Director.
The Wright Museum had lots going on this summer! Attendance is increasing significantly and we are pleased about the great feedback we have received on the new Marine Corps exhibit. In July, Family Day brought all generations to experience rides on equipment as well as tour the museum. In August, for the first time we hosted over 80 antique and classic cars from around New England. As we look towards winter, stay tuned for our Cabin Fever Lecture Series and more.
Remember that the Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and has not received state or federal funding. We count on the annual fund to continue our mission and bring visitors to the Wright experience.
Please join us with an annual fund gift as our success depends on you!
We thank you for your generosity and please come visit!
