Behind the Scenes by Mariah Lejambe …

Hello everyone,  I hope you all spent a wonderful Canada Day and enjoyed the sunshine.


This week at the museum, we continued to clean the exhibits. We also got to go through some storage boxes that were  filled with old documents and pictures!  Once we’ve sorted them, they will be scanned and entered into our Archives as part of the Digitization Project.


I have also started researching more about the carved statues in Mattawa and the area. Did you know there are 22 of them? 


This week the second chapter of the Turcotte’s Chip Stand community exhibit was posted on this website. If you’re having traveling withdrawals (like me), these incredible photos will take you on a fantastic trip from the comfort of your own home. 


As Alex mentioned, we have been working on our social media presence, and this week we have launched our first contest… a chance to win a free gift card for Turcotte’s Chip Stand !!

Check out the Mattawa Museum 2020 FaceBook and Instagram pages for more details.


Stay tuned next week to meet the newest member of our team !!
