Last winter I remember a late-night talk.show host musing about what kind of year we were in for. There was talk of the "New Millennium" and getting rich without working by investing in "tech stocks ." I even remember someone saying we would meet a comet head-on, and the world would come to an end. It was, after all, the "New Millennium."

Aside from putting new batteries in our flashlights, this past year was as far from the end of the world as one could imagine. For the Columbia River Maritime Museum the past 12 months have been nothing short of phenomenal! Our Board of Directors voted to move ahead forcefully with our well thought-out Capital Campaign and begin construction and renovation of the building. Within a month of that decision, we received $500,000 from the Ford Family Foundation and met our $5 million project goal.

Three years of architectural planning resulted in the final construction drawings. We bid the project, value engineered it, and then we rebid it to get the best possible price and the highest quality general contractor. Constrnction contracts have worked their way through rigorous local design review committees. Finally, the long-awaited

permits have been issued. Meanwhile, we are working on research and designs for the new exhibits.

Throughout all this unbelievable extra work, the Museum finished another great year with many worthy accomplishments. We purchased the last remaining pieces ofland from the Burlington Northern/Santa Fe Railroad. This land will complete the campus that RolfKlep, our founder, only dreamed about. Our tour ship operations have expanded to the point that the City of Astoria is building another addition to the docks. Our visitation has remained strong and our store sales are excellent. Best of all, our educational programs are now reaching thousands of children and adults. These programs are innovative, exciting, thought-provoking, and of the highest quality.

Finally, we have completed another year financially in the black. The conservative, yet forward-looking vision of our Board of Directors has led us through one of our most challenging years ever.

This year will no doubt be remembered as one of our most remarkable. And next year will certainly prove to be even more outstanding. After all, this year was just the first year ofthe ''New Millennium." It is only appropriate, then, that we should be moving full steam ahead.

2000 in Review

The year 2000 was a year of "firsts" for the Columbia River Maritime Museum. We brought out our first CDRO Ms, our first book, and we celebrated the beginning of our expansion and renovation project with a groundbreaking ceremony. Finally, we reached the $5 million mark for that project.

"BZ CRMM" read the flags on November 17, signaling "Well done, Columbia River Maritime Museum" in naval code. Close to 100 well-wishers gathered on the plaza for the Museum's groundbreaking ceremony, marking the beginning of our long-awaited expansion and renovation project. The Museum will stay open throughout the construction process. In fact, we are showcasing project plans with models and sketches in the lobby and the Great Hall.

With the gift of$500,000 from the Ford Family Foundation, the Museum reached the $5 million mark for the building renovation and expansion. Thanks to several large grants and generous donations from you, the Museum has started construction work on the building as well as the design of four exciting new interactive exhibits.

An American Journey: Photographs fivm the CRR1 Collection is an interactive computer disk (CD-ROM) that uses 250 images selected from the 3,000 photographs donated to the Museum by the Columbia River Packers Association. It tells the history of the fishing industry in Astoria during the 1940s. The CD has proved to be extremely

popular with the public- over 300 copies have been sold to date.

The Museum's other CD-ROM, The Columbia River Bar, tells the story of one of the most dangerous bars in the world through interviews with bar pilots, Coast Guard personnel, and local fishermen. The CD began as an Education Department project,

The Foosteps History project. This project paired ninth-grade students from Astoria High School with Museum volunteers who helped them compile personal recollections from local residents. Anna Henningsgaard, a member of the high school team, took the oral histories and created the CD-ROM. Copies of the CDs are free to educators requesting them.

The Museum teamed up with the University ofldaho press to publish Columbia River: Gateway to the West. Awardwinning author and photographer Carlos A. Schwantes has captured the dramatic history and current personality of the Great River of thf- Wf-st in fast-par,e<l prose an<l stunning photographs. It is a coffee table book par excellence that the Museum is proud to present.

from you. It was those individual pledges that created a positive climate for review of our grant applications.

Thanks to your early and continued commitment, we have met our core goal to fund a superb facility. With the momentum we have now, there will never be a better time to add more value to that facility by showcasing it in a setting that it deserves by enhancing the grounds. In addition, as could be expected, costs have gone up since we originally designed the project. As a result, we estimate that we will need to raise an additional $700,000 . Given our past record in raising money, we are confident that we can succeed in meeting this challenge.

Dear Friends and Members,

We are pleased and proud to announce that the Columbia River Maritime Museum has met its $5 million goal for our renovation and expansion project. The recent grant of $500,000 from The Ford Family Foundation, no small feat in itself, brought us up to the mark. Now is the time to celebrate a truly enormous success: we have met an ambitious financial goal in a mere 24 months. We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and bring you up-to-date on the status of the Capital Campaign.

Our success in reaching our goal has been partly due to our ability to secure significant grants: $1.2 million from the Meyer Memorial Trust and $500,000 each from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust and The Ford Family Foundation. We received those grants because the trustees kicked off the Capital Campaign with individual donations that totaled $1 .3 million. In addition, the Museum received another $1.2 million in individual pledges

We want to thank you again for the help you have given us in meeting our core project goal. We invite you to help us meet this final fund raising challenge so that we can make the Museum a truly world class institution.

CRl\1.M Endowment: This endowment was created with funds received from a Charitable RemainderTrustin 1998. Thefundhada market value of $182,000 at the beginning of the year and ended the year with a market value of $232,000. Nine thousand dollars of income were used to support the Museum's general operations, as specified by the donor. These funds are managed by Union Bank of California's Trust Department and overseen by the Trustees of the Museum.

Museum Income Fund: This fund, created in 1993 by the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees, is used to hold the earnings from the Rolf &Alice Klep Charitable Trust and mirrors that portfolio asset composition. Earnings from the Klep Trust and the Income Fund are used for general operations as specified by the Trust. This fund began the year with a market value of$495,000 and ended with a market value of$240,000.

This has been an exciting and challenging year for the Curatorial Department. After years of planning, this past year we have completed the packing and moving of about 20,000 artifacts from the on-site collections storage facility. This is all being done so that construction crews can start working on the remodeling of the building. The library has also been closed down and boxed up for safekeeping during the expansion. These have both been huge projects, and never could have been completed without our dedicated team of volunteers who helped us every step of the way.

This past year the department worked on over 250 research questions for the public . This is a number that continues to grow as word of the Museum's large archives travels. As the remodel begins, we have been forced to close down all of our research operations for the next 11 months. When we reopen in the new library, we will be able to accommodate even more access to the collection, including the ability to search the library listing on-line from your home computer.

The Museum's collections continue to grow Many new artifacts have been added and put on display. Some of the highlights include 169 photographs, 17 ship models, 60 books, three ships' bells, three marine engines,

and two new small boats

The Curatorial Department is proud to announce the completion of the Museum's first multimedia presentation . It was released to the public this fall. The interactive CD-ROM,An American Journey: Photographs from the CRPA Collection, features over 250 images from the Columbia River Packers Association operations in Astoria in the 1940s. These images, all scanned into a digital database, have been accompanied by oral history interviews with the people then employed by CRPA. Combined with music from the 1940s the CDs ' are the perfect gift for any history buff

The Education Department's goal continues to be improving existing programs as well as developing new ones to reach a broader audience. The past year was an exciting one. Our Museum in the Schools program presented 199 programs to over 5,000 students. The Department received a cost-share grant from the National Park Service to create an activity book about Lewis and Clark which is being distributed to 4 th through 6th grade teachers in the state.

A major goal for the Museum's education and outreach program is to present the Museum as an educational resource to teachers, students, and the community. This school year the Education and Curatorial Departments partnered with Astoria High School in a year long project with talented and gifted ninth-grade students. Entitled Senior to Senior, the project paired students with seniors in the community to collect oral histories. The Senior to Senior project was made possible through generous grants from Trust Management Services, LLC, and Quest for Truth Foundation.

After the interviews were gathered, the students created web pages from the materials they had collected, which were launched on the Museum's domain. Anna Henningsgaard, one of the ninth-grade students involved with the Senior to Senior project, took this project

one step further and created an interactive CD-ROM, The Columbia River Bar, which is offered free of charge to educators.

The Education Department continues to sponsor the popular Adopt-a-Ship/Adopt-aClass outreach program to local classes. Warrenton Grade School fourth-grade classes have adopted the USCG Cutter Steadfast for the second year in a row. USCG Cutter Alert will be involved with a fifth-grade class atAstor Elementary. The new C.O. of the Steadfast was so excited about this program that the ship will adopt

another class, this one at Gearhart Elementary. This year the USCG Buoy Tender Cowslip has agreed to adopt a middle school class.

The Museum presented many adult education classes this year which were very popular. "Sealore: Seafarers, Sirens & Serpents" was presenle<l by Twilu Sd101iekl. A talk about Hawaiiki by Pat Quesnel was delivered to a packed Kem Room audience. Captain Wayne Stolz talked about the transportation system of the Columbia River Bar Pilots.

From the Museum Store

Your Museum Store prospered again in 2000. The purchasing habits of the general public indicated an overall confidence in the national economy that translated into purchases of$5.93 per visitor. Total gross sales for the year came to $178,737 . The yearend transfer to the General Fund was $30,500.

The Museum Store strives to provide visitors with the most educational and best quality merchandise . This year's new products include Lewis and Clark woolen throws; a new Lightship Columbia coffee mug; a Butterfly Fleet "floatie" pen; a new interactive CD-ROM produced in our Curatorial Department, An American Journey: Photographs from the CRPA Collection; and our recently published book, Columbia River: Gateway to the West

This corning year brings increased excitement and challenge. Plans for an

expanded Store and the addition of a coffee shop have inspired us to research food service/store combinations, retail sales via the internet, store design, and more efficient inventory systems. The projected 1,400 sq. ft. space also presents merchandising and staffing challenges that require some forethought. As the new Museum Store develops , we hope to simultaneously expand the Store's presence on our website.

The introduction of a food service area into the equation has been an idea that the Museum has experimented with for several years through espresso and hot dog carts on the plaza during the summer months. The prospects appear promising that food service will enhance the museum experience. We look forward to this exciting new opportunity to better serve our visitors.

Marketing and Public Relations

This year articles about the Museum appeared with great regularity in local newspapers . Our biggest splash came from a front-page story in The Daily Astorian on the Astoria Middle School's visit to the USCG Buoy Tender Cowslip through the AdoptA-Ship/Adopt-A-Class program.

During 2000 , the Department focused on increasing the number of people we can reach by advertising in more regional and statewide media . We also initiated a Zip code survey of visitors to help us more objectively place advertising in the future.

The Museum is now meeting regularly with the Oregon Tourism Commission's Attractions Group, the Portland Oregon Visitors Association, and the Astoria/ Warrenton Chamber of Commerce's Lower Columbia Tourism Committee (LCTC). Partnerships with these organizations allow the Museum to participate in cooperative advertising that otherwise would be cost prohibitive

The article was picked up by the Associated Press and ran in newspapers statewide.

Three other stories ran in statewide media, including an article on the CRPA CD-ROM and the Scuttlebutt Saturday program on scrimshaw.

The Marketing and Public Relations Department's efforts resulted in a total of 229 stories or 2941 inches of free newspaper space worth $41,774 (the cost to purchase the same amount of advertising). This past year we spent nearly $19 ,000 on advertising; however, compared to the total value of exposure gained through press coverage, we got a return of nearly 2 to 1 for our dollar. This conservative number reflects a limited portion of the actual articles that ran .

The Department is continuing a media outreach program where we personally contact individuals in the media. These visits create relationships that help the Museum place information at a minimal cost in a variety of publications around the Northwest. This outreach program, in turn, increases the effect of our paid advertising .

The Museum received a $5,000 grant from the Oregon Tourism Commission designed to increase visitation to the Museum and the north coast of Oregon. The grant helped the Museum develop additional partnerships with the Cultural Tourism Task Force and the Oregon Tour and Travel Task Force, which focuses on attracting group travel to the state The grant also funded an off-season promotional campaign with the Red Lion Inn, which is the kind ofjoint effort the Depmiment hopes to continue to foster.

The Museum participated in the Quality Service Initiative, a state-funded program run through LCTC , to both study and improve tourism locally In addition, Mary Davis initiated and chaired a public relations committee for LCTC. With the assistance of a professional PR agency, the committee developed a press packet promoting the Astoria/Warrenton area .

We anticipate continuing our strong media relationships as well as building more partnerships that will bring the Museum increased recognition and visibility in the future.
