Golden Museum roof needs upgrade

The Golden Museum was grateful to receive a donation from the Ladies Lunch Break to help with the replacement of the building’s roof.

The Golden Museum was grateful to receive an unexpected donation from the Ladies Lunch Break to help with the replacement of the building’s roof.

“The museum was never built to be open year round,” said Colleen Palumbo, executive director of the Golden Museum, as she walked around and pointed out all the stained spots on the ceiling where the roof was leaking.

The museum was built in 1974.

The $37,000 project is set to begin with the removal of the current roof next month. The museum has gotten some grants to make the building a bit more “green,” but there is a long way to go to raise the funds to complete the project. Any donations would be gratefully accepted.

The Ladies Lunch Break donated $350 to the cause. The group, which was originally started in the ‘80s by wives of Rotarians, meets every first and third Wednesday of the month.

The group is always looking for new members, and is open to all women. The next meeting is at Red Diamond on Oct. 7. Anyone interested in attending can contact Sharon Weir at 250-344-2016.
