Our dream of a museum to preserve the history of the
Temple community is coming true thanks to support from the worldwide community. The Temple will have an informal opening tonight (Dec. 11) when it is part of the Temple Chamber of Commerce Christmas Home Tour. A formal opening will come later. Temple History Museum
I’m writing this letter to seek continued support from
Temple residents and others who have an interest in preserving the history of and its families. We need your financial support to operate, maintain and expand the museum collection, which will include a file for every family for which we have information. These files may be used by our descendents for generations to come. Temple
About four years ago Jay Driskill donated the old cleaners building for the museum. Since then, we have spent $26,000 cash and hundreds of hours upgrading the building, installing eye-catching murals outside and displaying our current collection inside. Local response has been very positive.
We’re looking for your support to continue. No gift is too small or too large. There are several levels of memberships: Diamond $25,000; Platinum $10,000; Gold $3,000; Silver $1500; Bronze $500; Lifetime $250; Family $35; Individual $25.
Do you have stocks that are paying very little dividends and capital gains tax on selling would be high? You could create a charitable gift annuity with the Temple Museum Association, which might work to benefit both you and the museum for generations to come.
