Due to low attendance at the museum and the difficulty in scheduling docents, we have made some changes in the museum's operations. We will now have the museum open only on the first Saturday of every month. Hours are 10:00 AM until Noon. However, we will also make arrangements to open it by appointment for individuals or groups. The telephone number for the museum is 254-562-4003 Extension 190. You will get a recorded message informing you how to make an appointment. Our small group of volunteers will make every effort to accommodate you with a museum visit.
It's a new beginning! Our new name is "Mexia Public Schools Museum & Alumni Association. This name is the result of the unification of the two organizations - the Mexia Public Schools Museum, Inc. and the Mexia Ex-Student's Association, Inc. The name was changed at the last regular meeting of the Association. After several years of contemplation, the volunteers who operate these organizations decided that things would go smoother with a single organization rather than two. So far, all of the feedback has been great!
The small cadre of volunteers is getting "long in the tooth" and fresh blood is needed if the museum is to be perpetuated for future generations. There is a definite and immediate need for dedicated volunteers. If you live locally or close driving distance, please give this serious consideration. Email Bob if you are interested.
You can contact us by snail mail at: MPSMAA P. O. Box 1044 Mexia, Texas 76667. You can email Bob Crider at: email@example.com or Robin Green (webmaster) at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will try to answer any questions that you have. If anyone has a class page set up, send Robin the link and we will add it to our page.
After much deliberation, the new association has set in mind a list of short- and long-term goals:
> combine and reorganize the associations
> provide for the operation and on-going support of the school museum
> provide an annual scholarship(s) in the name of "Mexia Ex-Student's"
> provide appropriate fund-raising and/or educational activities
