A Special Letter from Joyce Berg and Patty Hansberry, President – Board of Trustees:
Dear Friends of the Angel Museum,
St. Paul on the Riverfront DBA The Angel Museum, a not for profit 501c3 corporation, is struggling. We do not have sufficient funds , memberships, corporate sponsors, or volunteers to staff and operate the museum. We are now celebrating 20 years in business, but will be unable to open and continue in 2019.
We are so appreciative for the thousands of you who have visited and supported us through the years. We extend a very loving thank you to all.
What will happen between now and the end of the this year we are not quite sure. The angels will likely have to travel.
Perhaps there are those among you that could offer a helpful solution to us. If so, please contact us soon as our closure is imminent.
President, Board of Trustees
St. Paul on the Riverfront

Sallie started her professional life as a teacher down south eventually coming to Beloit. Upon her retirement she was asked to be a board member at The Angel Museum. After becoming a board member she was asked to become an admissions person. She had to think about that and after careful consideration she accepted. Since then Sallie has spent many days at the museum in admissions and is a very knowledgeable docent. She taught me the little things that get lost when a new admissions person learns about the angels. I have personally seen how she connects with the volunteers and visitors to the museum. Each person leaves with a little more knowledge about the angels. Sallie also helps with planning the dinner for hometown heroes. She remains a reliable and committed volunteer.
