Thanks to the generosity of two long-time Museum supporters and Life Trustees, Bo and Anita Hedfors, we are excited to announce that between now and the end of the year, every gift to the Water Tower Fund will be matched up to a total of $15,000. The Andersonville Water Tower is an important landmark for many from those with strong Swedish roots to residents of the neighborhood that saw the blue and yellow painted tower as a sign that they were home. We hope that through this matching gift drive to reach $100,000 raised by the start of 2015, which will help us begin to make concrete plans about the recreation of this beloved landmark. How can you make sure the impact of your gift is doubled? You can give online or drop off your donation designated for the Water Tower Fund anytime between now and Dec. 31.
