AutoFair has donated $2,500 to the American Independence Museum (AIM), a gift that will contribute to free admission for active and retired military, veterans and family members in 2016.

“We are honored to support the American Independence Museum and the veterans that gave so much for our country,” said AutoFair’s Andy Crews. “Their free admission is a small token of our appreciation for all that they have done and continue to do.”

Noting this is the second year in a row that AutoFair has supported free admission for military, veterans and their families, Museum Executive Director Julie Williams referred to the gift as “incredible.”

“The Museum was founded with the help of the Society of the Cincinnati, the nation’s oldest veteran’s organization, so this gift connects us with our past and advances us to a brighter future,” she said. “This gift will enable us to welcome those into the Museum whose efforts actively contribute to our freedoms as Americans.”

Comprised of the Ladd-Gilman House (c.1721) and Folsom Tavern (c.1775) on more than one acre of landscaped property, the Museum hosts public and educational programs and lectures, colonial artisan demonstrations, guided tours, and special events. The Museum is also part of the “Experience New Hampshire Heritage: The Portsmouth to Plymouth Museum Trail.”
