      Hello,

      I am pleased to be able to announce a few bits of good news related to the
      Lundy's Lane Historical Museum expansion:

      At last night's city council meeting, the Board announced four major donors
      for the project:

      1 - The Gale Family have made a significant donation and they will be our
      major donor with naming rights for the 1812 Visitors Centre

      2 - The Niagara Falls Hydro Holding Company has made a donation for the
      naming rights to the events courtyard and covered walkway

      3 - The West family, in memory of General and Christine West have made a
      donation for the naming rights to the "stairwell gallery"

      4 - The Main and Ferry BIA has also made a donation to the project

      In addition to this, Council approved the recommendation of staff to retain
      Moriyama and Teshima as our architects for this project. Moriyama and
      Teshima are very well known Canadian architects whose best known museum
      project is the design of the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa. They will be
      working with Lord Cultural Resource Management and Borgal Heritage
      Consultants on the Museum project.



      Construction should begin January or February of next year.



      A big thank you to all for your support and also a reminder that it is still
      not too late to make a donation...one time or monthly pledges are welcome
      and a tax receipt will be issued for donations. Email kwindsor (at)
      niagarafalls (dot) ca for more details.



      Kevin Windsor, Curator
