HAPPY 4th of July! Independence Day is Next Week
New Mount Rushmore Bookstore Opens in Sculptor's Studio
The Mount Rushmore Bookstore in the Sculptor's Studio is open for business.
The Mount Rushmore Bookstore in the Sculptor's Studio was closed in 2018 while the National Park Service underwent a restoration project of the entire historic Sculptor's Studio. Part of the improvements in the building was new space for our store. Be sure to stop in the next time you are in the park!
Summer Programs & Tips
With construction beginning at the park, the National Park Service has announced that there are ranger programs in the Sculptor’s Studio every 30 minutes starting at 9 am and continuing until 7:30 pm.  In addition to the studio programs, ranger talks and presentations by President Theodore Roosevelt are scheduled in a variety of areas. Check the Information Center for scheduled topics and times.

The Evening Lighting Program begins at 9 pm through August 10.  Beginning August 11, the Evening Lighting Program will change to an 8 pm start time through September 30.  The program will be held at the south end of the Avenue of Flags.  A ranger will announce the program, and a short ranger talk will be provided.  Veterans and active-duty military will be invited to hold the flag and fold it at the end of the program just after the National Anthem.

Visitors who have mobility challenges and wish to visit the Sculptor’s Studio must stop in the Information Center for instructions on how to get to the studio in a vehicle.  Studio parking is in a gated, secured area. Visitors must meet with the ranger at the Information Center prior to driving to the studio parking gate.

Patty Neumiller has been with the Society for four years. Before that, she was integral in the management and fundraising for other nonprofits. 

"Working with Society members, I'm impressed by the emotional pull that causes people to become members of our organization and stay involved," explains Neumiller. "I'm excited to work on the Monumental Movie Campaign, which will raise needed funds to develop two new educational movies to be shown at the park and allow visitors to fully engage with the history and story of Mount Rushmore."
Board Spotlight: Dr. Antonette Logar
Antonette Logar has been on the Society board for the last five years. Retired from  South Dakota School of Mines & Technology, she has traveled to more than 65 countries with her husband, Ed Corwin.

Even though she has seen the world, it's Mount Rushmore that she has a soft spot for.

"I saw Mount Rushmore for the first time in 1977. It was breath-taking, and it continues to take my breath away every time I see it," explains Logar.  "Not only because of the achievement of the carving, but what it stands for and how much was sacrificed to achieve what we have. I am humbled and in awe every time I look at the Memorial. I want to protect and preserve that for future generations in whatever small way I am able to do so. That is why I am proud to serve on the board of the Mount Rushmore Society."
