This year not only do we have our large list of tasks to complete, we also have another project coming up on the horizon.  The black part of the hull hasn’t been painted for very long time.  If fact nobody knows when the last time it was painted.  This is going to take many gallons of special paint.  Superior Public Museums is conducting a special program to encourage folks to Buy and Sponsor a Gallon Bucket of Paint to help restore and preserve the hull of the world’s last Whaleback ship.  The cost of sponsoring a bucket of paint is $50.00 per bucket.  The bucket of paint will be displayed in the tower of "Thanks" in the S.S. Meteor Museum with your name on it throughout the 2014 Tourist season. This will provide notoriety for the folks that helped with purchasing the paint and ultimately the new look of the painted hull. 


So please buy your sponsored bucket of paint today! Here is the link to the website.
