A MESSAGE TO OUR MEMBERS AND FRIENDS
The Magnolia Township Preservation Association joins other area nonprofit organizations in our efforts to support the directives of the State of Illinois by closing our museum and Community Room until further notice. Additionally, we have cancelled all programs and events. For our safety, our monthly Board Meetings are being held via Zoom until further notice.
To ensure that we are able to keep our facility maintained in the hopes that we can reopen in March, 2021, the MTPA has secured a grant from Illinois Humanities. The grant has allowed us to pay our utilities, insurance, and purchase dehumidifiers for the exhibit rooms to help maintain an environment that keeps artifacts and archives preserved. Touchless faucets and towel dispensers have been installed in the restrooms.
Illinois Humanities activates the humanities through free public programs, grants, and educational opportunities that foster reflection, spark conversation, build community, and strengthen civic engagement. Illinois Humanities is a nonprofit organization and the state’s affiliate for the National Endowment for the Humanities.
