A huge “thank you” to the board of trustees of the Sheldon Museum from the four grandchildren of Steve and Elisabeth Sheldon: Fred Sheldon Hakkinen, M.D., Coralie Sheldon Greenhow, Steve Brakken and Betsy Hakkinen Galloway. It means a great deal to us that the family name will remain in the official name of the museum. Thanks as well to the many community members who spoke out, wrote letters or otherwise expressed their support, and to the Chilkat Valley News for its ongoing coverage that kept the community informed. Special thanks to C.J. Jones for being willing to share our letter with the board at the meeting in December that was impossible for us to attend. The support from so many made a huge difference to all of us. We are grateful.
