Mac's Old Team (MOT) -- Support of The Space Museum (TSM) annex expansion:

Dean Purdy provided an overview of the progress and Mac's Old Team support of the expansion of the THE SPACE MUSEUM (TSM) at Bonne Terre, MO. We call this expansion "the Annex". It is a very large expansion (about 5,000 sq. ft), and requires almost complete re-structuring and/or addition of walls, ceiling, floors, electrical wiring, heating/cooling, etc. When finished as planned this will result in a very large expansion that will display the many great space artifacts that have been acquired by Mr. Earl Mullins, President of TSM. Some of the Mac's Old Team members have voluntarily been working on the "Annex expansion" at an average of 1-2 days per week (usually Saturday) for over a one year period. If any of Macs Old Team members or friends would like to join us as volunteers in this activity, you would be welcomed with open arms! Get in touch with Dean Purdy, Earl Robb, Ray Tucker.
Dean Purdy provided the following information:
