Museum Monday

                                  ~ by National Junior Vice President Leanne Newman

Make every Monday a special day to remember our wonderful GAR Museum in Springfield !

The Grand Army of the Republic Memorial Museum is a unique treasure the Woman’s Relief Corps maintains.  Located in Springfield Illinois, it houses a collection of artifacts donated by GAR members and Posts.  We invite you to stop in!  

As Junior Vice President for the 2017/18 fiscal year I propose a project for willing participants to support the GAR Memorial Museum.  “Museum Monday” allows an easy way to provide your loose change for helping to perpetuate our unique museum.  Here’s how:

  • Create a special container and place it in a handy or noticeable location.
  • Every Monday put your loose change in that container. Dollar bills are encouraged too.
  • At the beginning of October, January, April and July, count whatever has accumulated in your container and send a check or money order for that amount, to National Woman’s Relief Corps.  Be sure to indicate in the notes the donation is the Museum Monday results.

Help us to support the Grand Army of the Republic Memorial Museum located in Springfield Illinois !
