Lunch and a Jump Off

This week the BLM held a consultation meeting at the Museum. Over forty people were in attendance. The classroom was full. Lunch was catered by Famous Daves BBQ with tables placed out on the exhibit floor. After discussions and presentations, groups jumped off from the Museum out into the desert to visit sites.

Friday morning we had a visitor stop by. He had seen all the cars in the parking lot last week when the Border Committee was here for a tour and with all that activity he thought for sure we had opened. We had a good discussion about what "open" means. In the last couple of weeks we have had curatorial interns in the building ever day working on collections, we have had a volunteer day, we have hosted a couple meetings, and we have had people stop by for tours of the new facility. Actually, when you think about it, we have had over 100 people visit
the facility this month.

Is that "open?"
