Community First Initiative

In 2013 Knox Museum launched its “Community First” initiative, to create programming that would reach out to its neighbors, build stronger local partnerships, and attract more people to its 13-acre campus in Thomaston. The results were impressive!

Attended 2013's Boots on the Ground, the Museum’s Memorial Day weekend salute to America’s military
Attended Midsummer at the Museum, a family-friendly solstice celebration with pig roast, bonfire, and fireworks in June
Cut the Cake! At Henry’s big July birthday party, geared for the younger set
Attended KNOXFEST 2013 in August, with steel drum music, barbecued chicken, and an outdoor screening of “The Crossing”
Sat At Henry’s Table to enjoy an historically accurate 18th-century dinner in September
Enjoyed Midsummer at the Museum, a family-friendly solstice celebration with pig roast, bonfire, and fireworks in June
Experienced the Museum’s hugely popular inaugural food and wine festival, Taste of Thomaston, in October
Came along to the Holiday Open House at Montpelier, and another three dozen attended Historic Caroling with Anthony Antolini, in December

Attendance is growing! Combined with regular visitors and school tours of Montpelier; attendance at The Annual Knox Lecture at The Strand; at A Revolutionary Affair, the benefit dinner in August; and at its ongoing music programs and lecture series, Knox Museum increased its 2013 attendance by almost 50% over 2012, to a total of nearly 6,000 visitors.

Partners and programs keep us strong. The Museum actively partnered with community and civic-minded groups in 2013, including the American Legion, the Masons, Finnish Heritage House, Thomaston Historical Society, Camden Public Library, and Georges River Land Trust; earned some noteworthy corporate sponsorship, and received renewed support from its membership, volunteer base, and Board of Trustees, as well as from the Town of Thomaston.

Currently plans are under way to repeat many of these successful programs, and even to launch some new ones. Stay tuned to the 2014 Calendar for continuing updates!
