H. Earl Clack Board Discusses Revenues

HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – The H. Earl Clack Museum held their monthly business meeting Monday night to discuss several agenda items.

Museum Manager Emily Mayer gave the museum report and said revenue for the Buffalo Jump has been lower than expected this summer due to the extreme heat causing cancellations and making scheduling of tours inconsistent.

Board President Elaine Morse suggested Mayer compile data on tour cancellations to best predict future revenue. Mayer suggested having set hours so visitors would understand when tours were available.

Current hours of operation for the Museum are 1-5 PM, 7 days a week. Setting firm prices for the museum was mentioned but exact numbers were not brought during the meeting.

Morse noted that the Buffalo Jump gift shop had numerous items for sale but she wanted Mayer to submit a list of items she wanted sold at the museum site in time for the board to approve gift shop items to be sold at the interpretive center.

Another item discussed was the process of submitting changes to bylaws to the Hill County Commission. It was decided that the museum board only needed to submit the changes to the commission after approval by the museum board, with no additional approval from the commission. It was also necessary to submit to the county commission the need for additional museum board members.

One item approved was to submit to the Foundation approval of the purchase of signage for the museum building, with the contract going to the Montana Sign Company out of Great Falls. Morse said she was applying for a grant that would cover the majority of the $6,500 cost.

The next meeting is scheduled for September 12th at 6 PM at the Best Western Havre Inn & Suites on US 2 West. The public is welcome to attend.
