Dick and Elsie - Launch Phase 3Following the grand opening of the Lil Red Schoolhouse on September 26, the group responsible for the successful relocation project, is already hard at work beginning the research, planning and fund raising to execute the next phase of the multi-phased Heritage Center at Bullhead City Community Park. Phase 3 will include the re-location of the Colorado River Museum to the Heritage Center at Bullhead City Community Park.

The group is continuing to sell commemorative brick pavers as one of the core fund raising programs. Pictured is Golden Vertex CEO and President, Dick Whittington, presenting a check for the first $500 “gold” brick that will be laid in the courtyard of the re-located museum to Elsie Needles, President of the Colorado River Historical Society.

“Gillian and I are absolutely thrilled to be part of this project” said Whittington. “We are grateful and dedicated to our adopted community of Bullhead City. Golden Vertex will continue to facilitate the community-based Task Force, through the eventual completion of the Heritage Center”.

“We’re not yet sure if the actual Museum building will be able to be moved” said Needles. “We’re at the beginning stages of our research and planning. Whether we move the old building, or create a new one, the one thing we do know is that we’ll need to raise funds in order to achieve our goal of having one central location where everyone can learn about our history.”

The Colorado River Heritage Center Task Force continues to meet on a monthly basis, planning the next phase.
