“We Love Our Museums!”
Be Their Valentine
Stratford Museums Giving Day
Give your heart to Stratford Museums!
…and a few dollars, too!
Show your love for Stratford’s rich, vibrant Museum Community this Valentine’s Day! On February 14th, visit www.stratfordhiddengems.com and make a gift to your favorite Stratford museum, or spread the love and support them all with one gift.
The inaugural Stratford Museums Giving Day is an opportunity to support Stratford’s ten eclectic museums, which are among this historic town’s most treasured assets.
“Each Stratford museum is a ‘hidden gem’ with a unique story to tell. Intriguing artifacts that help tell those stories date back hundreds of years and are preserved and displayed with great care,” shares Stratford Mayor Laura R. Hoydick. “Gifts received through Stratford Museums Giving Day will help ensure that these stories are told for generations to come.”
Our community has been blessed with an abundant array of resources and talent. From aeronautical inventions, historic featured leaders and patriots, to the natural beauty of our shorelines. Stratford is a gem in itself.
