The Juneau-Douglas City Museum is soliciting applications for the Juneau History Grant with their April Coffee & Collections presentation: "Preserving Juneau: The Juneau History Grant."
This presentation will begin at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the museum, and will highlight past projects, discuss the grant process, inspire new project ideas, and recognize a generous donation to the fund.
The Juneau History Grant offers up to $1,000 to individuals and groups to assist with projects that further research, enhance documentation, or increase accessibility to the history of the Juneau-Douglas area. Applications for the 2010/2011 grant will be available during the presentation and are also available on-line. Applications are due June 14.
Several past award recipients will share their experiences and how the grant aided in the completion of their projects.
"Many events, topics and people still need to be part of our recorded history and the history grant is here to help," says long-time museum volunteer and history grant committee member Marie Darlin. Darlin, who presented the idea for this Coffee & Collections, will provide a brief history of the grant, established in 1980.
Kathy Hildre, Capital City Celebrations board chair, will also present an award of $15,000 to the Juneau History Grant Fund.
Coffee for the Coffee & Collections Series is donated by Heritage Coffee Company.
