Grand Opening Women’s Exhibit

New exhibit at the Museum
Dedicated to all the women of our community, past, present, and future

We will celebrate Saturday, June 29th with a free BBQ and music, outside at the Museum on Explorers Point. The BBQ will be available from 12:30 till 2:30. Then we will have official opening ceremonies, with special guests and speakers.

It is important that we connect our past to the life we have now and the legacy we want to leave to our children.

The focus is on women being the hearts and souls who contribute to all aspects of our community. Who are they, how they contributed and why we not only remember those who have gone before us, but celebrate who we are now.

We have an amazing timeline posted beginning in the 1800s that represents our journey through activism, legalities, rights, and accomplishments.

Most importantly it is a chance for us, as women, to continue to support and celebrate each other. While we remember those who have gone before us, we also need to lift those today who support and shape our community.

We will use technology in the form of a digital book and you will be able to contribute in the form of a memory or dedication, someone from your past or someone today – through stories, pictures, video, music – current stories as part of that celebration. What is a favourite memory? Story? Who would you like to thank? To celebrate? This is an opportunity for us, all of us, to write our stories.

We will have forms at the museum that you can take with you, or you can email us, and we will send you a form so you can submit a story.
