20160311 SOC Making-History-Matter-membership-campaign-underwayThe Mission Historical Museum, located at 900 Doherty, is continuing with its annual membership campaign, “Making History Matter,” running through March 18.

The Membership Campaign Celebration is set for Thursday, March 31, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the museum. The program will cover the museum’s vision for future growth.

Since it opened its doors in 2000, the museum’s focus has been to collect, preserve, exhibit, and promote the history and cultural heritage of its local and surrounding communities. Their successes are always reliant upon the dedication of the members, board of directors and staff to continue to provide quality exhibits and educational programs for the community, visitors and tourists of Mission.

This year the museum is reaching out to everyone in the community to join or renew in 2016. Those who become a new member or renew a current membership will receive benefits and special discounts on upcoming museum programs. All new memberships and renewals will receive a commemorative “Making History Matter” T-shirt.

The membership levels are Student, $10; Individual, $25; Family, $50; Museum Partner, $100 (organizations or businesses); $500 Corporate Membership; and $1,000 History of Mission Fellowship (lifetime membership).

Benefits for all members are a 10 percent discount on items from the museum store, discounts on select museum programs and events, subscription to the MHM quarterly newsletter, advance mailings and invitations to all museum exhibits, events, and programs; and special discounted rates on museum fundraiser efforts.
