    Tom, Eddie, Christy, and I would like to extend a heartfelt Thank You to all who attended the 3rd Annual Meet @ the Museum. It's been a weird and difficult year for all of us and  we weren't sure we would be able to put on the meet this year. After much discussion it was decided to go ahead with the meet, requiring the wearing of masks inside the Museum and shop, and limiting access to the building facilities to handicap only. We pitched a big tent, had bathroom facilities brought in and made available to all attendees hand sanitizer, masks, gloves, and disinfectant spray. With everyone's generosity, through the purchase of shirts, posters, fans, and monetary donations, after all expenses are paid, we raised over $600 for the Museum. Several fans were loaned to the Museum, of which I will do a later post about them. 
    I didn't get much time to take pictures of everything going on over the course of three days, but I took a stroll thru the parking area one afternoon and was in awe of just how far a lot of the attendees traveled to come to our event. Below are some pictures of the states represented, along with Eddie firing up the grill and some of the late Saturday morning activity.
    Chad Baker was one of the first to arrive, coming by the museum on Tuesday afternoon to drop off some fans before heading to northern Indiana to pick up another fan. Chris Smith came in Wednesday morning and was instrumental in helping us with making sure the meet went smoothly over the course of the three days. Ron Jeter came in on Wednesday to help too. BTW his plug display was incredible to see. Rick Huckabee and Jim Henderson also arrived to help out. I could go on for hours about all the fun I had and hopefully some of you will post here about all that was going on over the three days of the Meet. Again, All of us here at Fanimation extend a huge thanks to everyone and we look forward to next year and another Meet @ the Museum.   Kim
