Museum awarded $64,480 AAF grant

The Museum of the Plains was recently awarded a highly competitive grant from the Amarillo Area Foundation.

Improving the quality of life in Perryton is what the most recent AAF grant does for the museum. The grant totals $64,480 and will greatly improve the Great Hall at the Museum of the Plains.

The grant will fund the construction of two handicapped accessible bathrooms in the north end of the Great Hall. It will also fund the construction of an emergency exit in that end of the massive exhibit hall. Construction has started and plans are for completion over the next month.

“We are tremendously proud of our museum and thankful to the Amarillo Area Foundation for helping improve the Great Hall. Without their support through the years, our museum and community would not be as special as it is,” museum grant chairman Randy Skaggs said.
