The Museum depends on donations from everyone be it your high school annuals, letter jacket, class ring, school magezines, school newspaper, school desk, collection of key club photographs, etc. We want to expand our collection so that every school open and closed will be represented and none will get lost and forgotten. When you are looking through your old school memories, pause, then say "I could donate this to the Museum and then everyone can share in why my schools days were the best."
