Website Focuses on Future Coast Guard Museum
July 21, 2013
The National Coast Guard Museum Association has launched a new website www.CoastGuardMuseum.org to inform, engage, and communicate about the design, development and programming of the new National Coast Guard Museum intended to be built in downtown New London, Connecticut.
Developed by Quinn & Hary Marketing, a Regan Communications company based in New London, the new website brings to life the storied history and traditions of the United States Coast Guard, as well as showcases the current design plans and fundraising efforts for the new museum. The functionality of the site also allows for donations to be made and enables people to communicate directly with Association board members.
“This is a wonderful addition to our development, fundraising and marketing efforts,” said John Johnson, Treasurer of the National Coast Guard Museum Association. “Quinn & Hary did a masterful job listening to our goals and objectives and then translating them into this comprehensive site. It gives us a solid online presence for the new museum.”
The National Coast Guard Museum Association recently launched a fundraising campaign to raise $1 million by Labor Day. Through minimum donations of $1,000, $5,000 or a 3-year commitment of $15,000, these initial contributors to the National Coast Guard Museum will become members of the “Barque EAGLE Society,” which will receive a unique limited edition painting of the United States Coast Guard Barque EAGLE created on canvas by famed Coast Guard artist Tony Falcone of Prospect, Connecticut.
The image is being created by Falcone after sailing on EAGLE this summer. Each image will be signed and numbered by the artist and ready for immediate hanging by the donor.
