The Forks Timber Museum board met last week, and newly elected president Hop Dhoogghe called the meeting to order.

Timber Museum manager Linda Offutt has been cleaning and organizing the museum and hopes to have the building open seven days a week after May 1.

Forks High School junior Caleb Norstrom is doing his senior project on the history of the Timber Museum and will be working as a volunteer as part of his project. Board member Tom Rosmond brought up the idea of a website for the museum.

Other items of discussion included having Olympic Corrections Center inmates do more cleaning up of the grounds; they already have fixed some of the fencing on the property.

The Timber Museum always is in need of volunteers and new members. Membership is: $10 individual, $15 family, $25 organization and $50 business.

For information on volunteering, contact the museum at 374-9663.
