President's Corner

From the Winter 2007 Edition

President’s Corner
Dot Harinen

As the end of another year draws near we reflect on the passing of 2007 and upon our accomplishments for the year. The beginning of 2007 saw the demolition of the Freight Shed display area. Careful thought went into the planning of the new display cabinets and the laying of a new floor. This work was undertaken by local artisans using recycled woods giving us a new Large Exhibit Hall where artifacts not previously seen, due to lack of space, can be displayed.

Our summer students spent their time constructively working and developing our Education Program, accessioning artifacts and scanning pictures and newspapers in our collection. They also pitched in with the July 1st Military Day Event, general clean up in and around the Museum, lead tour groups and many other day to day chores. Thank you, you have made a large dent in what still needs to be done.

To celebrate the Festive Season various events are planned including our ever popular Christmas Teas taking place in the Venosta. Drop into the Museum, take a break from your hectic schedule and enjoy what we have to offer. …see details outlined in this newsletter.

As we jump forward to the New Year I would like to stress our need for volunteers. The success of our events is dependent upon our volunteers. When you are making your “New Years Resolutions” please consider promising to become a Museum volunteer. We need and appreciate all the help we can get. Without volunteers our events will not happen.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and staff of the Pt Moody Heritage Society I send out wishes to you and yours for a Festive Season and best of health and good wishes in 2008 and I look forward to seeing you in 2008.
