50th Anniversary Planning Committee

The museum is gearing up for its 50th Anniversary in 2017, which also falls on Canada’s 150th Anniversary. The museum community has decided this is a great opportunity to redesign and rewrite our permanent collection exhibit space. We are currently gathering contact information on any members interested in joining our Planning Committee. The planning committee will meet during the off-season (October to April) to discuss and develop new exhibits. If you are interested in joining our committee, or have a valuable skill we may need (carpenters, electricians, interior designers) and would like to volunteer those skills, please email or call us! We want to incorporate the community in the planning and construction process; this is your museum, help keep it alive!
