Have you seen the beautiful transition of the building at 18 Howard St.?

Our thanks go out to all who have put an entire new dress on the Aberdeen Room's exterior. To the members of the City of Aberdeen public works department who painted the side and front of the building. It so badly needed the fresh look! We thank you!

And the crowning glory! Bob Elliott donated his time and expertise in designing and painting an entire new museum sign on the side of the building at 18 Howard St. facing the city parking lot. The old one was badly tattered. Thank you, Bob!!!!
