The Museum held an open house from October 26 to November 5 in which staff members took visitors behind the scenes to show them the need for a new building. Voters were to decide whether to approve a million dollar bond issue for the Museum's new building plans on November 5. The brass quintet of the Navy Band performed on Saturday (October 26) and Sunday (October 27).
