Opening a WW2 Museum
For the past 3 years or so, much of my free time has been spent researching, collecting information and organizing things to prepare to open a museum which focuses on the soldiers of World War Two. Our collection is huge. We visited the Smithsonian in Washington, DC and spent the day there. We have more WW2 stuff than they do, which surprised me greatly. We have been collecting, seriously, for years with the hopes of opening a museum and it's getting closer and closer. What I am working on now is researching grants to see what's available. I have found quite a few that I am going to apply for and that will be the next big leg of this project. I am not at all fond of paperwork. I don't mind researcing, digging, finding things but I HATE FILLING IN FORMS, DIGGING UP DOCUMENTATION TO PROVE WHO I AM, MONOTONOUS.... OVER and OVER again signing of my name, typing the same thing TIME AND TIME AGAIN! I am not looking forward to this leg of the project but I know that once it's OVER, I will get a nice grant with which to start the museum.
