Michael Bania, president of the Friends of the Museum foundation, left, and Cyni Crary, director of The Nolan Center, are preparing for a membership drive on May 28. The event, Night at the Museum, will give attendees a chance to name the stuffed wolf shown here - and support the museum.

Since the onslaught of COVID-19 two years ago, the Friends of the Museum lost more than half its membership due to various reasons and has struggled with bringing in needed donations.

The nonprofit foundation that raises funds for the Wrangell Museum is working to increase membership through different means, including an upcoming membership drive.

"The (Friends of the Museum), when I came aboard in 2019, had 60-plus members," said foundation president Michael Bania. "In the first year of COVID, it dropped down to 23 members. Last year, we did a mailing, so now we're up to about 40 members."
