    If you join as a Founders Club member, your lifetime Friends of the YPBHMuseum membership will be honored with a special Founders Club YPBHM window sticker, your name listed as special contributor on our Sponsors page, and your name on a plaque displayed inside the Yellow Pine Backcountry Historical Museum.
