Friday and Saturday, November 25 and 26, represent closing weekend for the American Independence Museum and its 2016 season. In addition to the last days of the Revolutionary Currency Exhibit, sponsored by Optima Bank & Trust, visitors will get a last glimpse at exhibits on George Washington and the Society of the Cincinnati.
As has been the case thanks to $2,500 investments each by Two International Group and AutoFair, admission is free for veterans, active military, and their families. Following closing weekend, the Museum will host a Holiday Celebration Fundraiser.
Held during the town of Exeter’s Ring in the Season Holiday Festival, the celebration will feature live music, beer from Exeter’s own Neighborhood Beer Co., cheese and crackers, and a silent auction. The evening will also serve as a formal launch to the Museum’s inaugural Fund-A-Need campaign, which seeks financial support in specific areas of its operations.
“It’s a chance to help us make one more final push to reach our fundraising goal for 2016 and position us for growth in 2017,” said Museum Executive Director Julie Williams. “We will be expanding our education programs for kids and taking steps to better care for our collection.”
