Fifth Annual

Membership
Apprecication
Evening

Saturday, April 26, 2014
at 6:00 pm sharp

This is an evening given for members of the Westerly Armory. The evening provides a delicious pasta and meatball dinner followed by secret special entertainment this year, and a fun raffle. Doors open at 5:00 pm for tours of the museum and building, and the event begins promptly at 6:00 pm.

To assist the capital campaign, a $5 per person reservation fee is required. Non-members are welcome at $25 per person. You can reserve early by paying the $5 per person reservation fee in person at the Armory or by mail at Westerly Armory, PO Box 614, Westerly 02891. This is always a popular favorite and "sells out," so you may want to reserve early. Don't risk not getting a seat. This is a popular event; seating is limited.

The Armory Needs Help
to
Expand

The need for a community room (to coordinate with the great hall rental and for smaller meetings) and more museum space has become necessary at this point in the Armory's life. A capital campaign has begun its quiet work, and it is hoped that individuals, businesses, & grant makers will step forward to assist. An estimated $1.5 million will be needed to renovate the lower level to add 6,000 square feet of space. This level has 14-foot ceilings and windows, so it will be spectacular. Contributions are tax-deductible.
