Todd Talk February 2016


Executive Director Todd Ballance

We hope you’ve been safe, warm, and dry during the last month’s snow and rainfall. Since I last wrote you we’ve been working hard to provide you with an interesting educational series and gifts worthy of sharing.

Education is proud to announce the first event of our 2016 Calendar – Tony Williams presents on his book “Washington and Hamilton” on Saturday, February 20th, 2016. Tony will be available following his program to sell his and autograph his books. Click here for more information and to reserve your seat today. Limited seating available with only 20 seats remaining!

Marketing continues to work with our marketing contractors and partners in promoting all of our events, private event rentals, daily guided tours, memberships and donations. Recently I had the pleasure of meeting with Eric Worden of The Tide Radio for a brief on-air interview.

Operations is pleased to share the Gift Shop has some wonderful new merchandise as featured this month. Each season brings new items so be sure to visit often to enjoy what is in-store! Our groundskeepers remain busy cleaning after snow and rainfall tree debris and ensuring a manicured grounds. When you see Randy and Jerry next, be sure to thank them! Now is the time to check our availability and book your wedding before someone else does. Call Collin Norman to schedule a meeting to discuss your particular needs.
