Public Forums: Listening and Visioning the Future

For over 60 years the Washington County Museum has helped preserve the region’s history, educated future generations about our rich heritage and led the way as we explore what makes your community such a great place to live, work and play.

You can help us create a vibrant future for your Museum by giving just 90 minutes of your time.  Help us assure your Museum continues to meet the changing needs of the community by participating in one of our “listening and visioning” sessions.  Your valuable input will help build a path into the future that meets the educational and cultural needs of the region.

We want to hear from YOU!  For example, what do you most value about the Museum?  What more can the Museum be doing to serve our rapidly grwoing and diverse community?

Join us for a brief 90 minute conversation and help us shape the future.  Come learn about the Museum’s ambitious plans, then share your throughts and ideas so together we can assure the plans best meet the needs of the community . . . your community.  We would love to know you are coming, so we can send you some intersting background materials in advance.  Please register for one of the public forums by clicking on one of the following links.
