The philosopher George Santayana said "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." This statement has never been truer than it is today. Museums not only provide insight into local history but also provide a sense of community. The telling of history and cultures of a region provide a place to celebrate and understand our collective heritage. History and culture have many different facets and it is important that museums provide insight to all those facets. I applied for the Museum Board for all of the reasons above. We have a diverse history and culture that needs to be accurately preserved and told, warts and all.
The Fremont County Museum Board would like to welcome our newest member. Hank Overturf of Riverton.
