Bill & Cheryl Collins several antique weaving shuttles and spools
Jack Collins of Ronan donated 2 tickets to the Snake River Jump, personally autographed to him and his wife by Evel Knievel. Jack was Ronans first motorcycle dealer (Honda) back in the 50s and had sponsored Evel in some of his jumps.
Bob Feil Last spring Bob came over from Moses Lake WA for Gils dads funeral. While visiting the museum he noticed that an antique Mercury outboard motor displayed in the boat building was missing half of its motor case. His family-run boat business came in handy, as he found the missing part and sent it over.
Darris Flanigan 3 pieces of Polson memorabilia
Pat Fleming a beautiful cased set of Yankee screwdrivers
Howard Hudson motorcycle and BSA books, and numerous packaging items, office supplies, etc.
Greg Knutson, Glass Connections small snowplow, glass and glass cutting to fit whatever we needed
Virginia MacDonald donated a cd of Ratatouille, an Oscar winner and fun family movie done by her nephew, Brad Bird of Pixar studios.
Robert Wise donated a 1959 pair of giant slalom competition skis. They look so modern compared to all the older wooden ones we have, but when you think about it they are almost 50 years old.

May 8th, 9th, and 10th are Merchant Appreciation Days at the museum, from 7 am to 9 pm. Refreshments will be served and admission is free for all area merchants, their employees and their families. We want to show our appreciation for the support shown us by the majority of area businesses. We hope they will visit and encourage their employees to stop by and view our new displays. Visitors do appreciate local merchants who recommend something worthwhile to see in the area, and the longer we keep guests in the area, everyone benefits. It is hoped that the extended hours will give everyone the opportunity to attend. For free admission, visitors should identify their business in the guest book.
With the help of Tyler Rehbein Construction, our building site for the proposed tractor and ag building is ready. It will add approximately 3200 more square feet of display area and will house restored and quality tractors and farm equipment. One portion will be finished off as an office with rare and nice paper and smaller ag related memorabilia that will be seen but not touched. It will also house our ag related research library and book collection. At this time only Jim Pomajevich has made a substantial donation and we have a couple of smaller pledges. We are hoping this donation will create interest and entice others to join him. A donation here would be a great way to remember a loved one by funding a 10 ft. wide bay in the building. We encourage our museum friends to let their loved ones know in advance if they would like certain items or memorials donated to the museum. Often when it is necessary to write an obituary, the survivors writing it are under great stress and may not remember or even be aware of your wishes.
Board member Donna Maddux is looking for retired local teachers to assist with help or funding for painting the Green Mountain School and reroofing the teacherage.
