Exhibitions and Events

Build a Stage in the Theater Garden Project

Help us build a stage in the Theater Garden for Lafayette Civic Youth Theater and other performances. We have a grant to cover the handicap ramp and foundation, but need lumber, brackets and volunteer labor.

We have received a $6,500 grant from NCHS and a $3,500 grant from the City of Lafayette to begin the installation of a Theater Garden stage for Civic Theatre youth performances and other events. Help us by buying one or more boards or one or more post brackets to attach the posts to the foundation. The boards are ground contact treated for maximum durability and will be used for beams and joists. The post bracket is made of a heavy galvanized metal made for use with treated lumber.

The approximate cost of a 2 x 12 board 20 feet long is $50, and the cost of the post bracket is about $25.

The Haan Museum is a 501(c)3 non profit corporation. This is a tax deductible donation according to the IRS code.
