Old News; New Job

The Golden History museum is working on an important new exhibit–a timeline of Golden history, shown not just with words, but with photos and artifacts.  They have a dream team of local history experts working on it:  Dan Abbott, Jo Barber, Ronda Frazier, Richard Gardner, Dan Mayo, and Dennis Potter.   The museum’s curator, Mark Dodge, is leading the team.  This will be a good addition to the museum.  It will go in the gallery that currently has the Coors advertising exhibit (which will go down at the end of this week).  You can see their work in progress by viewing the current outline of the timeline.

Then and Now

The Golden Civic Foundation is seeking an executive director who is an energetic, highly organized leader with a strong and effective management record, personal interaction skills, grant writing experience and proven fundraising abilities. Due to the local orientation of our Foundation, there will be a preference for a person familiar with and living in the Golden community. The executive director should have a minimum of an undergraduate degree plus management experience. This part time position offers flexible hours. Attendance at the Board of Directors meeting (two meetings per month) is required. Required work hours will fluctuate, especially leading up to our annual auction fundraiser in the late fall. This is an opportunity for the right candidate to grow with the organization as we enter an exciting new chapter in our long history.
