In the jargon of films, it’s a wrap. In our terms, the museum sign and shack tent are literally all wrapped up for winter. The museum has also wrapped up its season and closed on Labour Day. Thank you to everyone who:
- visited the museum,
- shared a Waskesiu memory with us,
- played Bingo,
- attended Heritage Day,
- cheered at our entry in the Canada Day parade,
- shopped at our Yard Sale,
- ate our pancakes at the Three Island Paddle,
- purchased a kayak ticket,
- brought their children or grandchildren to the Children’s Festival,
- reminisced at a Camp Kitchen Coffee party,
- encouraged others to visit us,
- ….and so on! You are the reason we work at the museum!
Special thanks to our wonderful volunteers; many were able to attend our Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. Our summer students have headed off to school and university. Best wishes in your studies Victoria and William! Board Members continue working for the museum over the winter planning and making arrangements for next year.
Things to look forward to in 2017:
- meeting Chopper Beaver
- celebrating Canada 150 with a daily fact about PANP drawn from our history
- seeing our new display space in the Portable Cabin (Thanks for the awesome renovation Cory!)
- joining us for Camp Kitchen Coffee
- and….making new memories at all our annual events
We’d love to have you join us for the fun and even help us with our work. We welcome your offer of help at our email address. Volunteers help with painting, maintenance work, displays, research, guiding, cooking at events, working at Bingo, selling kayak tickets, restoring artifacts, interviewing and editing, advertising, being a board member – or any way you want to contribute! There is a task for every interest. We are volunteer run and operated!
If you are visiting over this fall, winter, or spring, see our display case in the lobby of the Hawood Inn.
If you need anything in the “off season”, contact us via email, email@example.com.
