April Shower

2017 DATE: TBA
Once again, the Daisy Unit Garden Club will be hosting their annual April Shower benefit for the Seminole Nation Museum. The shower is the primary fund-raising event for the museum in preparation for spring and summer tourism. The Daisy Garden Club plans to entertain you with delicious refreshments and warm fellowship in honor of your good deeds as part of this annual gathering.

Well into its second decade, the April Shower aids the museum in its mission to help preserve and promote the rich and unique history of Wewoka and the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma by encouraging patrons to donate much-needed supplies and materials to off-set extensive operating costs. The museum can the direct its own resources towards enhancing its programming and impacting the Seminole County region. Gifts of any size CAN and DO make a substantial difference!

Each year for the past decade, the April Shower has also funded a major project for the museum. This year, the 2016 shower will honor the Wewoka Sesquicentennial by supporting construction of the museum's new permanent exhibition, "An Everlasting Fire - The Seminoles of Oklahoma". The new exhibit celebrates 150 years of Wewoka being the Capital of the great Seminole Nation of Oklahoma and the rich history and vibrant people that have defined our community for over a century.

This will be the largest renovation project the museum has undertaken since its opening in 1974. The $150,000+ project will include all new state-of-the-art displays, interactive audio/video stations, and hands-on content for children. Upgrades to the space will also include new high-efficiency LED lighting and improved environmental controls.

Funding is needed to help finish the exhibit prior to Wewoka's Sesquicentennial celebration on June 25, 2016. A grant from the Oklahoma Humanities Council will provide a 1-to-1 match up to a total of $15,000. Any tax-deductible contribution you make can be double through this gift! Please take advantage of this generous offer by supporting the museum through the April Shower.

Remember that contributions of any size DO make a difference!

Thank you!
