In light of recent announcements from local health officials to ‘shelter in place’ we suspended Daffodil Days sales. We are so very thankful to those who purchased and hope they bring some cheer to your home. Please share photos of your flowers with us!
In consideration of the health and safety of visitors, employees and the local community, the Telluride Historical Museum will be closing early for the winter season. Last day open will be Saturday, March 14. The Museum will undergo a thorough cleaning and is planning to reopen for summer on June 1.
“As a small nonprofit and important cultural institution for the community, it is an extremely difficult decision to close our doors early.” says Executive Director Kiernan Lannon, “We understand this pandemic is serious and affects everyone. Our highest priority is to protect the health and wellbeing of staff and visitors. We’ll do what we can to minimize the impact for our staff and think creatively on how we can continue to engage the community during the closure. We are very fortunate that we have such incredible support from our community and we will do what we must to get by during this challenging time. We look forward to doing our part to support our community at large.”
In an effort to promote social distancing, the spring fundraiser Daffodil Days will be taking place in a limited manner and will not include live sales at Alpine Bank or the Community Table on Colorado Avenue. Bundles of daffodils are available for purchase online and over the phone and will be available for pick up at the Museum starting Monday, March 16. Those who order bundles of five or more can have the flowers delivered free of charge.
The Telluride Historical Museum has already postponed their other fundraiser, The ‘70s Shindig. A future date has not yet been set. With the loss of revenue due to lack of admissions and a cancelled event, the Museum is hoping the community will take advantage of Daffodil Days to offer their support.
