On Wednesday, Janet Wahlberg, the president of the Board of Trustees for the Fenton History Center, presented to government officials and key stakeholders about the center’s new exhibits, potential corporate partnerships, and upcoming community events.
During her nearly 20-minute briefing, Wahlberg discussed various topics including the center’s official mission statement and the personal properties of late Gov. Reuben Eaton Fenton that were being donated to the center. These items include items from the McClurg Museum that are believed to belong on display at the Fenton History Center.
Wahlberg stated that they wanted to reach out to government officials and other stakeholders for possible corporate memberships to boost funding. The center is looking for organizations that have an interest or are stakeholders with the Fenton. They also welcome donors and corporate partners who may be interested in a corporate membership. This would allow them to pick which programs and projects they would like to sponsor instead of being asked for donations throughout the year for each project.
In addition to this, the Fenton Museum will be hosting a Community Open House on December 2 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., and everyone is invited to attend.
