Donations Needed

The Wolf Point Area Museum made a significant step in its expansion project recently by having about half of the flooring completed in the 50 by 80 foot space.

The plan is for the area to feature historical businesses of Wolf Point including a post office, movie theater and blacksmith shop. In the theater’s area, a film will be shown with much footage of highlights from the Wolf Point Wild Horse Stampede throughout the years.

“It’s fairly long-range,” museum board president Jim Marmon said of the completion of the entire project. “It’s a matter of money coming in.”

Getting much of the flooring done, however, was a good another phase to tackle.

Marmon noted that high school students from R.C. Page’s industrial arts class performed much of the work as far as laying down the flooring and screwing the material down.

“We have great gratitude to R.C. Page and his students,” Marmon said. “Those kids were a big help. They are darn good kids.”

The museum is looking at grants and asking for donations to pay for insulation so the inside of the building doesn’t get too hot for patrons in the summer months.

Marmon expressed appreciation to the individuals and businesses who have donated or are considering donating to the museum. Without those donations, the expansion wouldn’t have happened.

The board of directors also includes Dave Arndt as vice president and Ralph Rigsby as treasurer.
