Tonight was the dedication of the new Collections Management Facility over at the Howard Museum. Rick Madden, President of the Howard Museum Board of Directors introduced the history of what became the CMF, Rev. Jim Wilkinson (Chaplain from the Seamans Institute) offered an Invocation of dedication, Mr. madden then came back and Introduced the Capital Campaign Committee. Keith Norrington (Curator of Collections) came up next and spoke of the continuing "Fulfilling the Dream of the Howards" with this beautiful new building. The Hon Tom Galligan, Mayor of the City of Jeffersonville cut the ceremonial ribbon to open the new facility officially. Over 90 people were in attendance from all over the rivers system. The guests then adjourned to the Carriage House for a dessert buffet and to view the beautiful photo exhibit put together by Board member Jim Reising. There was lots of river commaderie amongst the crowd.
