Democrat Photo On April 7, Security Bank of Southwest Missouri President Jon Horner presented Barry County Museum Director Kathy White with a $1,000 donation. With the monetary gift, Security Bank becomes the museum's first lifetime benefactor. The Barry County Museum, a 501c3 not-for-profit organization, must show that at least 33 percent of funding is contributed by the public. Area businesses and individuals can help the museum collect the needed public funding by joining the museum's membership. The Barry County Museum offers a variety of exhibits, including the Fields Photo Archives, and hosts many events, community meetings, reunions and other activities each year.
