Gasoline Station/Museum

To save & restore a 1928 Gas Station (oldest in city) located in the downtown,that was taken by the city for back taxes & environmentally cleaned up by the city & EPA grants. We hope to restore the station to how it originally looked and also to make a Museum out of it.  It would highlight the 2 industries that played a major role in Marlborough becoming a city, (Shoes & Apples) .  It would also house the complete contents of a shoe repair shop that operated on Main St. for almost 100yrs. in the 1900/2000s.  It was donated to the city & has been  in storage for many years now.  It would house artifacts, info.& photos from the Historical Society.  It would be manned by docents who will be volunteers from the Hist.Soc & Sr. Citizens.Assoc.  It would also distribute info. about Marlborough.
Budget  $500,000.00
Category  Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Historic Preservation & Conservation

Program Short-Term Success 
Save the Station from being destroyed as so many other historical  properties
in the city has been. 
Program Long-Term Success 
Complete restoration depicting the station what it was in 1928 & successfully
creating the musem & recreation of the contents of the shoe repair shop so that
people may see what life was like when gasoline cost just pennies & how our
forefathers made their living in the many shoe factories & harvesting the apple
crop from thousands of acres of orchards.  Also to see how shoes were repaired during those times.
Program Success Monitored By 
The success of this program will be measured by the number of visitors that
will visit the museum/station.  To measure this, we will ask visitors to sign
a visitors book & also to give what city, state or country they are from &  to leave written comments asbout their visits.  This will be handled by our

Mural Project

Outdoor Mural Project in central business district of Marlborough, Ma. Plan to eventually have 20-30 murals depicting historical events, persons & places from Marlborough & region.  Using the power of art & murals, it is our intent to create an "Outdoor Historical Art Museum" that will  be open 24 hrs.
a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a yr and will  be "Free".  Persons who don't
normally attend museums will now have the opportunity to do so & will be
educated on history of Marlborough, Mass. & N.Eng.  We plan on hiring professional muralists & having museum quality paintings.  We also plan on having hidden objects in the murals & people will have to study them to find them. In doing so, especially children will be learning about history & art without realizing it.

Taste of Marlborough

An awareness & fundraiser program that highlights the city's many fine restaurants & the downtown of Marlborough where it is held.  Originally started in 2008 as the Taste of Downtown Marlborough to create an awarness of the city's downtown & its restaurants.  Expanded in 2010 to the Taste of
Marlborough" to highlight all restaurants in the city and bring people to the downtown.  There is also entertainment at 14 different venues & also strolling entertainers within the downtown area during the event and historical displays,
ie; then & now photos of the downtown & other areas of the city.  June 10,2013 will be the 6th. annual Taste.
Budget  $25,000.00
Category  Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Cultural Festivals
Population Served General/Unspecified Adults Aging, Elderly, Senior Citizens
Program Short-Term Success

Program Long-Term Success 
Creation of awarness of the many fine restaurants in the city and also of the
other amentities of the city's downtown and raising funds for historical & downtown programs.
Program Success Monitored By 
number of ticket sales.  talking with attendees & participating restaurants that  express how it helps their business,
Examples of Program Success 
Every year the attendance has grown from 1,000 +/- 1st. yr. to 2,500 +/- in
2012.   Also, two restaurants (Thai & Mexican) that was ready to go out of business started prospering after their particpation in our 1st. year.  The mexican restaurant eventually went out of business for perosnal reasons.
A new restaurant also prospered from the taste to the extent that it added on to their establishment.  The majority of restaurants participate every year because it helps them create new customers.  The taste has also created an awarness of the downtown to thousands of people who never visited the downtown.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

The biggest challenge that we faced in carrying out our "Mural Project" was
receiving approval from the city to do it.  It has taken 5 years to finally receive
that approval.  Now that we have received that, our next biggest challenge
comes in finding funding for the project.  We expect to address this by
applying to various foundations, for state funding through the Ma.
Cultural Council and corporate contributions.
Another challenge facing us is that of trying to save the oldest gasoline
station (1928)  in the city and create a museum depicting the shoe & apples
industries.   We plan to join forces with the Marlborough Historical Society,
the Marlborough Downtown Village Assoc. and the Marlborough Regional
Chamber of Commerce. to convince the city to do this instead of tearing it down and then to find funding to do the museum.  Our biggest challenge facing
us will be that of finding funding for our programs.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
