Closing a beloved institution like the museum is another step backwards for Portland

PMG PHOTO: COURTNEY VAUGHN - A child peers through the doors of the shuttered Portland Childrens Museum on March 31.Thanks for the in-depth article on the closure of the Portland Children's Museum ('Parents rally to save Portland Children's Museum,' April 28, 2021)

Might this be worth some extra coverage on your part? Like why does the board seem so unresponsive? Possibly get hold of the Board's meeting minutes under the Oregon Open Meeting law?

The PCM's closure is another unfortunate step backwards in the overall attractiveness of the greater Portland area. If no government entities like Portland Parks or Metro or others come to the rescue, might one of our corporate citizens be interested in becoming a sponsor? How about it Nike, or Columbia, or Intel, or Daimler (freightliner trucks), or Vestas (wind turbines)? Or others. Some of the interactive displays might gently highlight the functioning of your products, thus stimulating young brains.
