Realizing the need to better organize our collection, and to move it out of the Hall-Dyer House in preparation for the renovation, in February we hired Emma Schroeder and Courtney Spalding-Mayer to help us for a few hours a week. Computer-savvy, young and strong, they worked with Curators Bobbi Carleton, Joan Casarotto and Bob Cottrell to improve the accuracy, completeness and user-friendliness of our digital records. With Kate Thompson they carefully moved many items to secure storage sites kindly donated around town. To heft the larger items, Bruce Robinson generously loaned us his team: Adam Robinson, Michael Octavek and Greg Repucci.
This project is not finished, but we’ve made a wonderful start. Big thanks to all who have helped and continue to.
