Beltrami Historical Society Re-Membership Drive
Calling all history buffs, train aficionados, genealogy researchers, and everyone looking for something new and interesting to do this fall. The Beltrami County History Center is the place for you!
The Beltrami County Historical Society is pleased to announce the start of our “Re-membership Drive,” with the help of the George W. Neilson Foundation. For each new member from now until March 31, 2021, the Neilson Foundation has pledged a matching grant. If we reach our goal of 200 additional memberships, we will receive the maximum match of $5,000 from the Foundation.
“We depend on member support, year after year, to keep our museum open and provide all the events and activities that make the History Center a unique place in our community,” explains Sue Bruns, President of the BCHS Board. “With this ‘Re-membership’ drive, we hope to let people know what a great place the museum is for families, and reconnect with some previous folks who might have let their memberships lapse. We’re very grateful to the Neilson Foundation for their generous assistance.”
Did you know that free admission to the History Center is one of the many benefits of a membership to the Beltrami County Historical Society? Other benefits include:
§ Special free events for the entire family, such as Train Day
§ 1- year subscription to The Depot Express
§ Research facilities available for use free of charge, and 3 hours of assisted research free every year
§ 10% gift shop discount
§ Voting privileges at BCHS annual meetings
§ Membership in the Time Travelers Network for free admission and other benefits at over 300 historic sites in the United States.
As an extra bonus, if someone joins or re-joins as a member right now, or simply renews a regular membership, BCHS will extend the membership all the way until December 31, 2021.
An individual membership is just $25, and family, sponsor, and higher levels are available. If you haven’t yet joined the BCHS, or you’ve let your membership lapse, now is the time to act. Become a member – or a “Re-member” – today. Come on down to see what’s new at the History Center. And help us benefit from the generous matching grant from the Neilson Foundation.
