September 5th: this is really Day 5 in the countdown. To what, you say? To our goal of having the entire LCHS artifact collection moved from its present home(since 1978) in the Swarthout addition of the La Crosse Public Library to our new digs at 145 West Ave. There is a budget, a schedule, and lots of preparation already done (thank you interns and volunteers!), but the job ahead is still massive. And the goal is to have everything moved by the end of October.
How does one move a collection consisting of over 10,000 historic artifacts? Stay tuned and find out.
