On December 3, 2019, the Rotary Club of Alameda presented 23 organizations with grants, and one of these organizations was the Alameda Museum. The funds for the grants were raised by the Concerts at the Cove. Museum Board President Valerie Turpen and Vice-President Myrna van Lunteren were there to receive the check.
The money will be used toward a software subscription, necessary for creating a digital copy of the Museum’s card catalog. This effort will start next year.
