After 2 years we are ready to Roar into the Twenties, 2022 that is!
Due to the Covid-19 Virus, the Taste of Harlingen was not held in 2020 and 2021. We are very excited that we can host this year’s annual fundraiser the Taste of Harlingen.
Our goal this year is to raise funds for Harlingen’s first hospital which needs major repairs. We have obtained bids for the foundation and bracing of the walls. To make the necessary repairs, we must raise $50,000.
Our main objective is the stabilization of the building. We have the recommendation of a noted San Antonio Preservation Architect, and an Engineer who together have arrived at a plan for beginning the restoration currently needed. Their recommendation has the required approval from the ‘Texas Historical Commission”, which is required as our hospital has a State Historical Designation.
If you want to support the museum, sponsorships in any denomination will be gladly accepted in person or by mail to PO Box 532347, Harlingen, TX 78553. If you want to pay by credit card you can call Forrest Garling at 956-216-4904 or stop by the Museum at 2425 Boxwood (across from TSTC). Everyone stay safe and healthy!
