SPEAKER:
The speaker today was Jim Gant from the Sandbox, an Interactive Children's Museum.
The Sandbox partnered with the Town of Hilton Head Island about four years ago to build a children's museum as part of the Coligny renovation.    The park, playground and museum will be located at Pope Avenue and South Forest Beach. As is the case with many construction projects there have been challenges and delays.  So far they have raised $115,000, of a total of $150,000 needed. VanLandingham Rotary Club has donated $75,000 of that amount.  The layout of the museum has been designed and refined.  There is a Rotary Room near the entrance with themed exhibits.  The current facility, located at 18A Pope Avenue provides an interactive experience for local and visiting children and the new facility will expand on that experience.  They are working on improving the marketing to reach more tourists and locals.
