Quonset Hut Remodel Project
The Quonset Hut at our Observatory serves as our meeting and lecture hall. It was donated to the Society in 1955 by the Milwaukee Public Museum. It has served the Society well over the years, but simple maintenance no longer suffices. We need to replace the entire water damaged inner shell as well as the floor of the building and modernize the lighting to ensure our visitors enjoy a much more healthier and pleasant environment. To accomplish this goal we need to raise $25,000 during the year 2016.
As much as possible, the work will be performed by members of the Society. We are doing internal fundraising which includes selling some of our old telescopes, other astronomical equipment, and surplus books from our library. And we have received many contributions from our members.
