The Victor Lowell Thomas Museumhas received $55,000 in challenge grants to install
heat at the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. We need everyone’s
help to match those funds. Heating the museum means we can
stay open longer in the season to bring in school groups and
to help create a more viable, long-term business presence
for downtown Victor; better protect our historic collections
and artifacts; and provide the visiting public and staff
with a more comfortable experience.
Without heat we are unable to install water and
restrooms which makes for a more enjoyable experience at the
museum and would mean having to depend on city and private
business restrooms for our visitors.
A special St. Patrick's Day dinner of
corned beef and hash will be served. Following dinner, the
live and silent auctions will held. There will also be Irish
whiskey tasting and live music by Patti Best. The doors open
at 5 p.m. for pre-viewing of auction items. Dinner is served
at 5:30 with the auctions starting at 6 p.m. All tickets are
$7.50 per person at the door of the event.
If you would like to donate an auction
item, please email
email@example.com, or call one of the board
members listed below. All items must be available for the
event by March 12. A list of auction items will be posted
here and updated as
often as possible.
