The Ridge Route Communities Museum has scheduled a mid-winter fund-raising event where you, and we, “Do Nothing.”

These winter months are not a good time to plan an event, but the expenses at the museum continue. The museum board has decided to see if funds can be raised by asking our community if, instead of helping us out with your time and talents, you could possibly just send a donation.
   
This unique February fund-raising festival is held with a bit of humor in mind, but it is hoped that residents of the Ridge Route Communities will be part of the “Do-Nothing” event to help support the work of the volunteers at the museum who collect and preserve the area’s history, keep our little museum open, pay our mortgage, insurance, alarm company, utilities, make displays and welcome you and other visitors every week.
