    Many people make their final donations of the calendar year in December. Those considering such gifts are asked to add the Scott County Heritage Center and Museum to their lists.
    The museum is a privately-funded facility and relies heavily on charitable contributions to pay operating expenses. As its board begins to repay the USDA Rural Development loan which paid for upstairs renovation, private contributions are more important than ever to the museum's future.
    Preservation Alliance Inc. (PAI) is the organization which operates the museum. PAI is a certified 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization, so donations are tax-deductible.
    Contributions may also be made in memory or honor of a loved one, friend or colleague. The museum is the chief caretaker of the county's history and is a great way to honor those who mean so much to the community.
    Opportunities for room dedications are also available.
    Persons interested are welcome to contact museum staff by calling 752-1050 or visiting the facility for more information.
    The museum is located in the old county poor farm building at 1050 South Main Street. Admission is free.
