Thank You from Millstreet Museum & Millstreet Website

Sincere thanks for kindly supporting last weekend’s churchgate collection for Millstreet Museum & Millstreet Website. The amount collected was €1,434.88. This included a very kind €20.00 cheque from a Millstreet native residing in Tralee.   This is our principal fundraiser for both the Museum and the Website.  Our major cost is insurance cover which absorbs a significant portion of our overall funds.   Heating, lighting and communication costs are also quite substantial.  The reopening of the Museum Centre with its Tourism dimension has involved appreciable expense.   Like many voluntary fundraising projects recent annual collections have differed from previous years.   Our collection this year has fallen by over €400.00 from last year….by over €350.00 in fact at this point as a very kind contribution of €50.00 has just been presented.  In order to sustain the local service it is hoped that some additional form of funding may become available throughout the coming year to allow us meet with ongoing expenses.   We are blessed to have Mary Kelleher and Mary Cronin with us as Coordinators Supreme at the Museum Centre in Carnegie Hall, Millstreet.   Long may these Government-funded Schemes continue as they are invaluable and of enormous importance to Voluntary Groups such as ours.   Over the years the sincere support of everyone for our work at Millstreet Museum and for the Millstreet Website team is greatly appreciated.  (S.R.)
