We have an important request from the White Sands Missile Range Museum:
Dear WSMR Kids,
I am in the process of collecting artifacts, photographs, blueprints, stories to create an exhibit, here at the White Sands Missile Range Museum, to tell the story of the children and youth programs/activities of WSMR for the past 65 years. I understand that you will be having your Reunion in August and I would like to invite you to bring with you anything that you might want to share or to be considered for use in this exhibit.
I specifically am looking for old photos of the buildings that once housed the various youth activities and photos or programs, invitations for any special events.
Please email me if you have specific questions: [email protected]
