Letter to the Editor – Tim and Joan Harvey

To the Editor:
We have traveled by car to all of the lower 48 states. We spend most of our time off the road seeing state capitols, museums, antique shops and unusual points of interest. The museum in your town is one of the most unique and complete displays of interesting items we have ever seen. There is something there for everyone and especially for youngsters.
Whatever reasons may exist for reducing the town budget for this museum, please consider the impact on the youth in your area. This is akin to reducing library budgets, which is another terrible way to save a few dollars. Hopefully, some alternative can be found to sustain and preserve this special town treasure! Good luck.
