Reference sheet protectors
(clear & top-loading)
our inventory project, we have one binder per building, with
one sheet per item in the building. Therefore, we need
a lot of these sheet protectors. The estimate is 7,000
sheet protectors or 70 packages of 100. (1000 for the
depot; 100 for the train; 800 for the Freighter's Hotel; 900
for the school; 500 for the church; 100 log cabin; 1000
for the Boyd House; 200 livery barn; 200 grounds; 2000
storage rooms; 200 archive building-storage area only)
We have received donations of 1200 sheet protectors!!
We still need 5800 more to complete our project!
Ink for printers
the same inventory project, we will have a picture of the
item on the top of each page. We will be printing these
on-site, to save money. Therefore, ink will be in demand.
We currently have two computers and printers ready to start
is something we can take with us to booths to show what we
offer. This is also a great way for us to market what
we have in the archives, show off our events, etc.
Digital photo frame
description as the dvd/vhs combo tv, just another avenue we
can take. This is something we can take with us to booths
to show what we offer. This is also a great way for
us to market what we have in the archives, show off our events,
or folding chairs
would be great for special events and weddings. Then
our authentic chairs wouldn't be used. 100 chairs would
be ideal. They do not necessarily have to be white.
current snow blower attaches to our lawn mower and only works
on a certaqin amount of snow. The walk-behind snow blowers
work the best for our brick pathways all the way around our
|2 large trash cans (35+ gallon)
- one for recycling and one for trash, but both for gazebo
the gazebo, one blue can for recycling pieces would be great
and another color for regular garbage collection is needed.
we have been borrowing a volunteer's rope machine and he demonstrates
rope making with several other wonderful volunteers.
We would love to have a machine of our own. Since this
piece will be for educational use only, it does not necessarily
have to come from Buffalo County.
computers (and additional pieces) would help in both the office
and in the archives for our faithful volunteers. We
prefer modern pieces so we can have at least Microsoft Excel
and Word on them.
special events, a golf cart has been borrowed in the past
to help shuttle those that park far away and/or have difficulting
moving around the grounds. It would be a huge help to
have one donated to us, to have on hand for each event.
|Portable ADA ramps
would help our guests in need to be able to go into some of
our buildings. Currently the depot , archive building,
and the new livery barn are the only accessible buildings
Carbon monoxide detectors
carbon monoxide dectors are needed for the six buildings with
smoke dectors are needed for each of the buildings withm electricity.
|Water filtration cooler
is a dream probably for our new building's break room.
a not-for-profit, 501C-3 organization, we are always in need of
volunteers, event sponsors, building fund donors, and members.
We appreciate your support!
