Coast Guard museum group debuts project website

The National Coast Guard Museum Association launched a new website to inform the public about the design and development of the new National Coast Guard Museum, which is slated to be built in downtown New London, Conn.

Developed by New London-based Quinn & Hary Marketing, a Regan Communications company, the website shows the history and traditions of the Coast Guard and allows visitors to make donations to further the museum’s construction efforts.

The association recently launched a fundraising campaign to raise $1 million by Labor Day. The organization has achieved its initial goal of raising $100,000 for the new museum, a milestone that came less than 15 days into a 100-day local fundraising campaign called "The First 100." The campaign was launched June 1 to generate initial funds for the development, programming and marketing of the new museum.

"This is a wonderful addition to our development, fundraising and marketing efforts," association treasurer John Johnson said in a statement. "Quinn & Hary did a masterful job listening to our goals and objectives and then translating them into this comprehensive site. It gives us a solid online presence for the new museum."
