We are so thankful to those that attended our Grand Opening the weekend of June 9 & 10. The most accurate observation was a quote from board member Paula Mackrow, “If it were any better, we couldn’t have handled it!”
About 200 attended on the weekend with most saying they found out about it from friends and family or the newspaper. Several said they didn’t expect it to be so great. We had people fill out surveys that showed all displays were a success with the most “wows” for the “Seasons of the People” (Methow Native) and “Collisions and Ice” (Geology). Since these are two of our permanent displays, it was gratifying to hear. Nearly all attendees noted that they would visit again.
Two third grade classes from the Methow Valley Elementary School are coming to tour the Interpretive Center. We have made a questionnaire for them to ”unlock” mysteries as they wander around the center.
