Finally, 2020 is behind us. Although the pandemic has continued into 2021, it appears the worst is behind us. I certainly hope so. The Gilmore Car Museum is open and following all CDC precautions. As our government often says, I'm "cautiously optimistic" that we'll have an enjoyable gathering this year.
A 2021 Lincoln Homecoming is planned for August 12 - 15 at the Lincoln Motor Car Heritage Museum. Complete information is contained on this web site as well as in the four major Lincoln clubs' publications.
The Foundation’s Museum Endowment fund continues to grow—but a bit slower than most of us would like! Please consider the museum when making your financial gift plans. A Lincoln Legacy Society was created in 2018 by which individuals and businesses can make provisions in their estate plan or establish life-income gifts to benefit the Foundation.
Thank you for all do for our Foundation and Museum.
