If you drove by the
you may have noticed some construction, but sadly
it has been temporarily stopped until
we have the funds required to finish.
A question some might be thinking is,
“Why do they need more space?”
WE NEED A LARGER RESEARCH ROOM
Thankfully, we received a technology grant,
WHICH IS A GOOD THING,
to purchase a computer, printer/copier/scanner,
and a few other items.
In order to provide research and educational programs
we would like to make available to our members
the use of two websites:
Ancestry.com and Newspaper.com; however,
we do not have the space to accommodate this now.
THIS IS A BAD THING.
Solution to Reason 1
The wall adjoining the current small storage room
and research room would be partially removed to create
one large reading and research room. Thereby providing
adequate space for our members to use
the technology and conduct research.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE ITEMS
CURRENTLY IN STORAGE
The current storage area is very limited.
Unfortunately, we've had to turn down receiving artifacts
and files because we simply do not have the space.
We also have boxes and filing cabinets full of priceless
photos and information on local businesses, family
history, Lucasville Grange, fire department, schools,
churches, Girl Scouts, Garden Club,
and the list goes on and on.
We also need space to grow those resources.
Our town has grown and so have the businesses and groups.
Some reading this article may even be thinking of starting
a family file for safekeeping at Heritage House.
Valley HS alumni might even consider storing vital
documents and photos of your graduating classes.
And we need space to store displays for future use.
WAYS TO HELP
1) Become a Lifetime Member for $100
2) Shop using our AMAZON SMILE link
3) Buy a LAHS candy bar at Lucasville Giovanni’s.
Better yet, buy one for a friend :-)
4) Shop the Pampered Chef party online through May 31
5) HELP US MATCH A CHALLENGE.
A generous donor has pledged to match up to $2000 or
match whatever amount is donated! Any donation helps
meet this match donation.
6) Purchase part of the new storage space
7) Purchase the whole storage area
8) We need $2,000 to finish paying for the labor
to install siding (a generous donor has already
donated $2,500 to cover over half of the cost
of labor to finish this project)
9) Hardwood flooring has already been donated
---VERY MUCH APPRECIATED---
Now we need to pay for the installation.
Approximately $2000 would cover this bill.
Any donation toward meeting the total is appreciated.
10) A special door is needed to join the current house to
the new addition. This will cost $500. Any donation toward
meeting the total is appreciated.
