This year, National President Amanda Nagy has chosen to support the Museum. She is raising funds to help build a hands-on exhibit to show school children what happens to the furs that the traders obtain from the indians. The children will learn how the furs are made into beaver skin hats similar to the iconic hat worn by Abraham Lincoln.
Her National Project theme is "Hats off to our Heritage" and she will be selling lapel pins to help raise money.
The Illinois Chapter of CAC recently visited the Isle a la Cache Museum and saw the area of the proposed exhibit.
