Farewell 2023...Welcome 2024!

As we close out the year and begin a new one, it's an appropriate time to look back on our events, our improvements, and on the many hopes for the coming year.

It's been a year of major projects in the Fort and Visitor Center with new doors, windows, walkways, and utility upgrades. History, art, music, and cultural programs were held almost every month.

We especially want to thank all who have generously given of their time and talent as volunteers at the Fort. Their contributions range from decorating to data entry to booking concert bands to stocking and managing the Museum well as providing informed guides to visitors to the Fort and city.

All our members, too, who renew every year, whose contributions ensure that the daily operations of the Fort run smoothly, are truly appreciated. Donors' and sponsors' gifts have ensured that we are able to offer programs at low or no charge.

As a historic site, we are acutely aware that we ourselves are living in historic times with rapid change in the environment, politics, and technology. Our mission is not only to accurately present the past but to be aware of its relation to the present and to look ahead to the future. That awareness will guide us in the years ahead. Thank you to all who have helped us in "Keeping History Alive!" for the past 35 years.

Best wishes to you all for a healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year!
