Letter: Museum needs funds for roof repairs

The Rangely Museum has a critical situation that involves replacing the roofs on the Chevron Recreation Building and the Chevron Camp House. The roofs will not last through another winter without causing major damage to the inner walls and ceilings. We are swallowing our pride and pleading with everyone to help us with this project. It does not matter how small, anything would be helpful. With the economy and the slowdown of the field, it will be a while before grant monies will be available again. Protecting the contents and buildings is our sole purpose. We need $6,212.50 for the rec building and $4,212.50 for the camp house, to install steel roofing. Won’t you please help us?
We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped with this project. As of Aug. 25, we are up to $8,100 of the $10,425.00 needed to replace the two roofs. We couldn’t do this without all of you. The materials have been ordered and the contractor is putting us on his schedule for this fall. If you haven’t yet, we hope that you will consider helping us with this project. Again, thank you, your support is greatly appreciated.
