"History matters. Education matters. It is our responsibility to not only preserve and protect Fresno County's rich history, but showcase it at the largest annual event in the Central Valley and a year round venue for the public to enjoy and learn from," stated John Alkire, CEO of The Big Fresno Fair. "We have been fortunate to have so many community history advocates come forward in support of the Museum and we hope even more will come forward and get involved. Fresno has a lot to be proud of and we need to tell and preserve its stories. The Fresno County Historical Museum will only be as good as the community wants it to be, so we need their continued help."
