Guam - The Guam Museum Foundation launched its new friends of the Guam Museum Membership Program, chaired by Francis Guerrero. "This again is all about the people of Guam stepping-up and saying that this museum represents them and that they want to be a part of what it means and making it sustainable and looking forward towards the actual construction," he said.

The program offers different levels of membership such as a business rate, students, senior citizen, families and individual rates. As a member you receive announcements and updates regarding the museum's progress as well as complimentary passes to tour the Latte of Freedom and the Hall of Governors, where there will be ongoing educational opportunities and special programs promoting and celebrating the island's history and culture. One is a photo exhibit featuring the earliest photographs of Hagatna. The exhibit started today and runs through the 28th.

Meanwhile, starting in January we should start to see the barricades going up at Skinner Plaza where the museum will be constructed. For more information go to GuamMuseum.com.
