Mattatuck Museum board president, Cathy Smith and museum director Bob Burns invite the community to attend the museum’s 134th annual meeting on Wednesday, May 30, 2012 from 4:30-6:30pm. This year’s meeting will recognize the museum’s many devoted volunteers.
Following a brief meeting of the board, the event will continue with a review of the Museum’s many accomplishments in the last year (May 2011 through May 2012) including new exhibitions, educational programs and continued outreach to the greater Waterbury community; followed by a reception honoring and thanking longtime volunteers, members and friends of the Mattatuck. “The museum would not be where it is today without the support of the Waterbury community and our dedicated volunteers and supporters,” said Bob Burns. “They make what we do possible and worthwhile.”
