Letter to the Editor: Roynon Museum of Earth Science and Paleontology



We would like to express our appreciation to our friends at the Times
Advocate for the times they have featured something about our museum
within their pages. The first time was a full article about our opening,
our mission, and our goals. We loved the article and evidently so did
many residents around the area. Our staff and volunteers have been
trained to always ask, “How did you hear about us”, as visitors enter
the door. After that first article 90% of the people coming in said… “We
saw you in the Times Advocate.” For several weeks after that we had a
measured increase in attendance, directly attributed to that article.
And we have been equally blessed each time there has been something
about our museum within your pages. When we reveal a new exhibit you
have been kind enough to feature a picture and make mention of the
event. And every time, we once again, experience many new visitors to
our museum. This only confirms what we already knew. Escondido and the
surrounding areas are glad to have the Times Advocate back again. Having
been born in Escondido over 70 years ago, I grew up reading the Times
Advocate and I was among the many that were heartbroken to watch as it
faded into the sunset. I can’t begin to tell you how many of our
visitors start a conversation about the paper coming back and how much
they enjoy reading it. And now, we even have some people that stop by
the gift shop to pick up a copy each week, knowing we have it here on
our shelves. So thank you again for reporting the museum’s news, we so
appreciate it and the new visitors it has brought through our door.

Jeannie Nutter, Director
