Daisies Slate Annual Museum Fundraiser

Posted by Richard Ellwanger on 04/21/2014

Wednesday, April 30th is the day members of Wewoka’s Daisy Unit Garden Club have set for their annual “April Shower” fundraiser for the Seminole Nation Museum. The come-and-go event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Museum, located at 524 S. Wewoka Ave. Everyone is invited to participate. 

For 2014, funds are being raised to help continue the Museum’s on-going landscaping project, which was started in 2013. Once completed, new shrubs, grasses, and other planting will highlight the Museum’s street-level beds on Wewoka Avenue and 6th Street. Since 2007, the museum’s board and staff have worked diligently to refurbish and preserve the historic nature of the Museum building, which was built by the Works Progress Administration in 1937 as the original Wewoka Community Center. Cash contributions of any amount made to the shower are appreciated and can be mailed to P.O. Box 1532, Wewoka, OK 74884 

Last year’s event, which was attended by people throughout the community, raised over $15,000 worth of goods, supplies and contributions for phase one of the landscaping project and to assist the museum in its mission to help preserve the history of Wewoka and Seminole County.
