The North Tonawanda History Museum has been informed by supporter Donald S. Soos, a Florida resident, that he has announced today on his Don’s Diamond Store website that he is giving the history museum its first “ninth anniversary gift.”
The history museum will be officially nine years old on April 20 and will be celebrating the 116th anniversary of North Tonawanda’s incorporation as a city form of government (April 24, 1897) and the history museum’s anniversary that day.
Soos, is a retired U.S. Navy veteran. He enlisted in the Navy during WWII, served during Korea and Vietnam conflicts and retired in 1971. A small business owner for many years, he recently retired once again and currently resides in Florida,
The following was posted on Soos’ website:
“This has long been my liquidation outlet for out-of-state friends and customers to purchase new, estate and antique jewelry, with guaranteed best prices, anywhere. Most items are actually priced well below current wholesale, with savings up to 80 percent or more off regular retail stores. Yes, this is really possible. We purchase jewelry in quantity from estates, auctions and pawn shops, thus purchasing items for just fractions of the wholesale value...”
He continued, “I am a native of North Tonawanda, New York, once known as ‘The Lumber Capital of the World,’ and have been a supporter of the now nine-year-old North Tonawanda History Museum. In discussions with history museum representatives, and from reading their weekly e-mail newsletters, I understand and appreciate the urgency of their financial needs at this time. Therefore I have offered, and they have accepted my offer to donate 85 percent of the proceeds of my sales from this site for a three-month period to help with their fund-raising efforts. This is my way of wishing them a happy ninth anniversary.”
This began March 21 and will end June 21. This is a win-win situation. Buyers can save up to 80 percent or more off retail prices, and at the same time be assured that they are helping support the North Tonawanda History Museum.
Visit the Don’s Diamond Store website to make a purchase, which will aid in the future of the North Tonawanda History Museum.
