Our thanks to our new and renewing members (since 1/17) in the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum. Your financial support provides events, programming, and logistical support to the staff of the Eric Sloane Museum. Your commitment underscores your support of Eric Sloane and the museum he founded. Thank you.
We thank the following people for their generous financial support for our Noah Blake Cabin Restoration Fund:
Robin Dill (Robin owns Kent’s House of Books and has been a steadfast supporter of the Friends group for years).
Carol Fenner, in memory of her husband Robert Fenner. Bob was a great admirer of Eric Sloane and worked tirelessly on several projects related to commemorating Eric, one of the most significant being the Eric Sloane Commemoratives Committee. Bob organized and ran the committee, with the stated purpose of working to ensure that Eric Sloane was honored on a United States postage stamp. Bob was of critical help during the formation of the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum, and his wisdom was sought on many occasions. Specifically, Bob was instrumental in assisting with the onerous task of filing for 501c3 non-profit status with the IRS. Bob shared with Friends founder James Mauch copies of his work related to forming the Eric Sloane Commemoratives Committee so that the Friends group would have a model from which to work for their own application. It can be stated that it is doubtful that the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum would have ever achieved non-profit status without Bob’s help. We’ll all miss his insight, wisdom, and guidance.
