The Friends of the Laperouse Museum are creating a special fund to assist in the purchase of additional exhibits to enhance the Laperouse Museum.
At the Annual General Meeting held on November 17th the meeting decided to purchase a museum quality scale model, exhibited at the annual meeting of Laperouse’s ship La Boussole at a cost of $3300.00.
The accuracy of the model and the qualifications of the manufacturer in Madagascar has been confirmed by Monsieur Pierre Berard of the Laperouse Society in Albi France.
The Museum already exhibits a model of the second ship in Laperouse’s expedition, L’Astrolabe.
To date the fund has already raised a total $1,550.00. Additional contributions are sought. Should contributions exceed the cost, the balance will be set aside for the purchase of additional exhibits as and when they become available. No matter how small, your contribution will be appreciated .
