Now that the museum has acquired the building for the new site, we are working on raising funds to make it into a quality museum, accessible to the public and an attractive addition to downtown Locust Grove.
Our estimated cost for renovation is $800,000. We have the building, an architect, and a construction team, so now we need to keep working on raising the necessary funds for all of the preliminary work that needs to be done in order to begin renovation.
This raffle, completed in November 2020, raised approximately $8,500 for the museum. The winner of the Lucky Turtle bronze was Kevin McQuigg, and the winner of the fused glass turtle was Beverly Golden from Tulsa.
The LUCKY TURTLE is approximately 4″ long, 3 1/2″ wide and 1″ tall. This is a 2nd edition. The first edition was very popular and sold out fast. This 2nd edition is limited to a production of 130. The value is $1,500.
The turtle brings luck. The symbolism on it means the following:
Rain Cloud: Prosperity
Turkey Track: Plenty of game
Thunderbird: The Sacred carrier of happiness unlimited
