Updates for May 2020

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 and recommendations coming from our Governor recently, all CRHSM events and meetings in May will be cancelled.  As much as it saddens the CRHSM Board, this cancel policy includes Victoria’s Tea Fundraiser and our May 9th Trolley Tours.  Our museum remains closed as well.  Continuing the recommended practice of social distancing and no-more-than-groups-of-10 poses to be a great challenge in spaces such as trolleys, public events and being in the museum.

Behind the scenes, the CRHSM is still “working” and our current project has been the establishment of an Instagram account and a media campaign you may have seen on Nextdoor.  We are featuring one Castle Rock location each month with a prompt for folks to contact our museum staff to learn more about the featured place.

We appreciate your continued support.  Let’s continue to take care of ourselves now so we can pass the Castle Rock history on to others in the future.

On behalf of all of us who call ourselves the CRHSM.

Thank You,

Staci McCormack, President
