11/17/2020

Dear Friends of the Fullerton Museum Center:

The voters of Fullerton have spoken. The FMCA would like to offer our sincere congratulations to new city council members Nick Dunlap and Fred Jung. The challenges before them will be daunting, but the promise of new visions and solutions should make us all hopeful.

Since the FMC was defunded on June 2nd by a 5-0 city council vote, you, the citizens of Fullerton have made it abundantly clear that you support the arts in our community.

✅ Over 2,600 have signed an online petition in support of the FMC.

✅ The FMCA Board, with city staff eventually laid off despite earlier promises, managed to put together a very successful FMC and ME exhibit.

✅ With the help of volunteers, the galleries and gift shop stayed open throughout the Fullerton Market season.

✅ The Leo Fender Gallery was saved… for now.

✅ $35,000 in Grants were sought and awarded to the FMCA. Over $20,000 was raised in gift shop and art panel sales.

✅ The annual tradition of Haunted Tours was maintained… with masks and social distancing.

✅ Complimentary Art Kits for Kids were distributed throughout the Market season, and the early COVID months.

While the FMCA Board of Trustees and a small band of volunteers have been working very hard behind the scenes, the future of the Fullerton Museum Center in 2021 and beyond is in no way certain.

We believe that the FMC serves as the hub of Fullerton’s downtown, and serves all ages as a valuable educational facility and meeting place.

In addition, the FMC has provided a diverse array of exhibits, art programs for adults and kids, summer camps, Haunted tours, Fullerton Airport tours, the internationally famous Leo Fender Gallery, a very popular wine and beer garden, and a wide variety of other events and activities that benefit the entire community.

I do not believe that that the citizens of Fullerton and North Orange County want to lose this downtown treasure. Funding must be restored.

If you agree, I urge you to voice your support for the Fullerton Museum to our new city council members through letters, e-mail, voice messages, or in-person conversation.

Regards,
Kirk G. San Roman,
President, FMCA Board of Trustees

Thank you FMC for this wonderful take home art project! You ROCK!! ;P Mommy and Me Mandala Stones!
We used pieces of the art kit today and made mermaids. Thank you for the free art kit and we look forward to our next art project.
Fullerton's Taco Fest was a total BUST!!!... Most vendors were out of meat before 7 PM!!! What a waste of effort to attend! This was the 9th annual??? How many years does it take to get your act together???
I am very excited about tomorrow. I am looking at meeting a very special dog who would like to be friends with me. It doesn't matter what breed you are, (I like Goldens, German shepherds, or Dobermans.) I like to cuddle and be jumped on. But it must be in a chair! Any of you dogs need a friend, I will be right down after 4 o'clock! So talk to me and give me your cute woof woof woofs! I love y'all!
When are the Dog Days? I love them!
There is som much history you can hear and feel the soul of Leo Fender
Our Fullerton tee is back!
When are Dog Days please? I get a lot of great compliments from the dogs when I go! If it's August 9, I can't go; I go to Camp Bloomfield (Malibu, CA) same day.
Please come and enjoy the show!!! I don't see this advertised on the site, but this show will be this Friday evening!
