This #GivingTuesday we are raising money for new lighting in our Blue Room to properly highlight recent donations - a 1941 Dodge Ambulance and a 1943 2 1/2 ton Army Truck. These vehicles were restored by the sons of WWII veterans to honor their fathers' service. New lighting will give the vehicles and artifacts the attention they deserve. Please consider donating this December 3rd: https://eldredpawwiimuseum.com/donate/

Save the date! #GivingTuesday is December 3rd. We're proud to be a part of this global celebration of giving.
