It is that time of the year again for me to write my assigned blog entry for the Museum and I am happy to do so. I will again, however freely admit that I am still a neophyte when it comes to social media. I have been told that I can take this opportunity to espouse on the past year and what the Museum accomplished, worked on, struggled with etc.. That being said let me say that 2011 here at the Museum has been an active and fulfilling year. We welcomed a new Curator of Exhibits at the end of the year and we are working to get him settled into both our culture here and the culture and climate of south Florida, (I think he’s enjoying the warmer than Detroit like weather already). We also took on some operational and housekeeping issues this year including a new initiative called “Fall Cleaning Days”, since Spring is too hot in Florida we opted for a fall version of the work and it went swimmingly as they say, we kept what needed to be kept and discarded what needed to be discarded, like any good museum would do.
2011 has also been a bit of a transitional period for the Museum as we continue our work and get acclimated to the newly elected Tribal Council that came into office in June. So far we have had great interactions with the elected officials and they seem to be as excited as we are about what the Museum can do for and with the Tribal members. They also understand the role that the Museum plays in the national front and they are proud of all that has been accomplished so far.
So here’s to a productive and healthy 2012 and maybe by the end of 2012 I’ll have mastered the art of online user defined information and will have even more to share in my new year’s blog of 2012!
