The Medford Historical Society & Museum is applying for Community Preservation Act grants. Our deadline to apply is March 2. Evidence of public support and thus YOUR SIGNATURE is very important in securing these grants. We are applying to upgrade our HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems to museum quality. We need to protect our collection of over 20,000 items from damaging fluctuations in temperature and humidity. With a new museum quality system, the air circulating will be filtered for dust and mold spores. All these issues contribute to permanently degrading our collection. The existing systems are similar to what you would find in an older house that had not been upgraded for decades. This is not suitable for long term preservation of paper, textiles, metal, and wooden objects. We are also applying for a smaller grant to remediate damage to our textile collection, most of which was donated more than 50 years ago and stored in our building under the very conditions we now must correct.
Please sign this petition to indicate your support for our mission "Building Community Through a Shared Sense of Medford History" and thereby urge approval for our CPA submission. Time is running out, so please do it today.
