Loss of revenue due to the cancellation of several of our fund raising events in 2020 had an impact on our finances but we felt the value of your health was of the utmost importance. With the promise of brighter days ahead, we will look forward to 2021 season when we are able to be assured of a safer environment to resume our role of welcoming you to visit the Patten Lumbermen’s Museum and of your support of our mission through your admission, generous donations and support of events like the Bean Hole Bean Dinner in August of 2021.
