Tri-City Food Fight Week 2 Totals:

Hastings Museum: 800 lbs
Stuhr Museum: 540 lbs
Archway and Nebraska Firefighters Museum: 233 lbs

Total raised: 1573 lbs

The Archway and the Nebraska Firefighter’s Museum in Kearney will be competing against Stuhr Museum in Grand Island and Hastings Museum in Hastings to see which organization and community can collect the most canned food items to give to local food pantries.

Kearney area residents can drop off their items during normal operating hours at both museums. The Archway is open Monday-Saturday from 9am to 5pm and Sunday from Noon-5pm. Hours for the Firefighter’s Museum are Monday-Saturday from 10am-5pm and Sunday from 1pm-5pm. A list of items needed by the Jubilee Center can be found at www.kearneyjubilee.org/food-pantry.html, however neither museum is able to accept items needing to be frozen or refrigerated.

In 2014, the food drive collected nearly 3000 pounds of food items with only Stuhr and Hastings Museums participating. This year’s goal is to reach 5000 pounds of food donated to local pantries.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

CLOSED – FEB 20-26
Feb 20 – Feb 26 all-day

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Archway announced it will be closed February 20-26 while work is done to improve operational efficiencies.

Marketing Coordinator Jace Robinson said the biggest project that will be completed is centralizing the switches and breakers that start the exhibit’s audio and lights. He said currently, staff members must walk between three floors to flip breakers and switches to start everything.

Additionally, the facilities point-of-sale system will be upgraded. Robinson said, “A lot of the equipment we use is becoming less reliable due to age, so we will be updating the equipment to make sure we don’t have any hiccups when guests purchase items in our gift shop.”

Robinson said, “We’re always looking to improve efficiencies in every aspect of our operation and during this closure the projects that will be completed will be a big step toward some of our efficiency goals.”
Archway staff and volunteers will also be cleaning throughout the facility during the shut-down. The Archway will begin normal operating hours starting on Saturday, February 27.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
