Museum Director Tom Vaughan says goodbye

Dear Editor,

For the past 11 years I have had the privilege of directing operations for the Little Thompson Valley Pioneer Museum. My tenure with the organization ends as of January 2, 2010.

I wish to thank the citizens and merchants of Berthoud, the Town of Berthoud, and the members and volunteers of the Berthoud Historical Society for the support they extended to me and our museum during this time. It isn’t possible for me to thank every individual, but I especially need to recognize everyone who participated on the Berthoud Historic Home Tour committees, the farmers who allowed me to document their lives, the docents, the vintage base ball team, the town staff, my assistants, the Main Street Committee, the Historic Preservation Committee, the Trails Group, the calendar design committees, the program speakers, the exhibit committees, and the researchers who all made my time in Berthoud fun, uplifting, and very educational.

Berthoud treated me well. I hope in return that I contributed to a better understanding and interest in the history of the Little Thompson Valley and its rich and myriad paths. I hope that I have helped to foster an enthusiasm, respect and reverence for Berthoud’s heritage, its buildings, streets, trees, and finally as one local historian said, “The history beneath our feet.” It’s been great!

Tom Vaughan
Museum Director
1998 – 20010
