For the Week Starting December 10th 2012


We have a lot of new faces (including me) and new things going on in the museum.

So there will be a staff/volunteer/intern meeting WEDNESDAY at noon in the gallery that should last no more than 15/20min to get everyone up to date and on the same page to make 2013 the best year ever for the APEX!
