We would like to welcome our newest board member Landon Elenbaas (on the left). This young man brings with him a passion for history and a long family history in Whatcom County.

With him are board president Michelle Spencer (center) and Director/Curator Troy Luginbill (right).

The museum would also like to thank the LPM Endowment Foundation for their support. The check in the photo is the first payment to the museum for 2017. The Endowment provides 1/6 of the museum's annual budget of $125,000. Without it there would be no museum.
