As the only heritage organization in Renton, the Renton History Museum has been preserving our city’s history for kids and families for almost 40 years. Like many small community-based organizations, we make the most of the resources we have, but our exhibits, programs, events, and classroom curricula have been limited by the funding available to us.
That’s why we believe it’s vital that supporters of lifelong education come together to vote YES on King County Proposition 1 Access for All.
Prop 1 will dramatically increase and stabilize resources available to hometown organizations like the Renton History Museum, Renton Civic Theatre, Evergreen City Ballet, and many others. Prop 1 will also fund free field trips and in-class programs for Renton students, enhancing their education with unforgettable learning experiences.
At the museum, we have seen firsthand the power of thriving heritage, arts, and science institutions for our kids, for families, for residents, and for visitors to our city. Prop 1 contributes to the viability of these local assets while also ensuring that Renton students have access to life-changing cultural experiences.
When you receive your ballots before Aug. 1, please vote yes on Proposition 1.
