MHA Historic Preservation Awards

Millyard Museum Receives Grant from Manchester Rotary Club

RotaryHPA2018 The Manchester Rotary Club, celebrating its centennial, wants to make sure Manchester students get a dose of Queen City history, and has just announced a $15,000 grant to the Manchester Historic Association to fund field trips to the Millyard Museum for every fourth grade class in the city, starting this September.  “Manchester is a resilient city that has reinvented itself more than once,” said incoming Rotary Club President Susan Manchester. “We need to learn from our past, which is why Manchester Rotary Club is pleased to donate this sum to MHA so our students can witness the successes, challenges and perseverance of those who came before them.”

The grant money will cover bus rentals and the cost of two educational programs at the Millyard Museum.  The grant award was embraced by Manchester’s Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Bolgen Vargas, who is an avid fan of the Millyard Museum.  “Manchester has a rich history, and all of our children should have the opportunity to learn more about what makes our city unique,” said Vargas. “We are thankful to the Manchester Rotary Club for providing the resources that will help the Millyard Museum reach more than a thousand fourth-graders in the next school year. I know that our teachers and students will be eager to participate in the educational programs available.”

As funding permits, the MHA will also reach out to parochial schools and charter schools in the city, according to MHA Executive Director John Clayton.  “To this very day, I remember full well my fourth grade field trip to the MHA from Gossler Park School,” he said, “and the Manchester Rotary Club is now giving that same opportunity to so many kids. We couldn’t be more grateful.”
