  1. I just wanted to ask what kind of membership software your museum used to keep track of members.

    Thanks,

  2. I am a former resident of Greenbelt – during the 1940’s? Have you ever had any gatherings of “old-timers”? Haven’t been back since the 1970’s.

    • Hello! Yes, there have been gatherings of “old timers” mostly around anniversary years. For instance there was a large gathering of “pioneer” residents and families on the occasion of the Greenbelt’s 50th anniversary. We are in the midst of planning the citys’ 75th anniversary in 2012. The main festivities will probably take place in October of that year. I encourage you to become a member of the Museum so that we can keep you informed! Also check greenbeltmd.gov for more information. The museum is actively collecting photographs from Greenbelt’s early years – if you have any you’d be willing to share, please let me know. Thanks,
      Megan Searing Young

  3. Thanks for the tour and lecture you gave our CSLC 834 class from Catholic University. It was really interesting and helpful to us. I subsequently wrote a short paper about your museum and received a very satisfactory grade for it. We all appreciated your insight and the information you shared.

    Sincerely,
    Sheree Budge

  4. My grandfather, “Henry Fisher” was one of the outstanding citizens in 1975. He was an active member of the community and a member and president of the Lion’s Club. It was really very special to see his name on the list of Outstanding Citizens. Thank you!
