Remington Museum Campaign a Success
OGDENSBURG, NY - The Frederic Remington Art Museum's membership drive has truly been a team effort, with trustees, staff and volunteers helping with its promotion. A social media hashtag #RemingtonMember campaign and ample signage within the museum helped bring a positive response from many. Other new members were personally solicited for membership. Momentum built as we approached the July 24th event, the Inaugural Remington Reunion Celebration. Held during busy Seaway Festival, the event was a celebration of the museum and its members and donors. The momentum is still felt a week later, with new members continuing to join. The tally is 137 new members. 50 of those live in Ogdensburg. 55 others live in New York State in other communities. 13 states other than New York are represented, and there are 3 new members in Canada and 1 in Sweden.
