A big Thank you to the Government of Canada for funding throughout the Summer

LOGO Gov't of Canada Acknowledgement

This summer has been a spectacular one! It was full of events, sunshine, and busy days. We worked hard with our summer staff to make sure that the museum stayed in its best shape, and we had some fun along the way. As the summer comes to an end, we won’t forget the memories made or the friendships.

This summer we had three incredible staff members Tara Beuk, Melissa Lacelle, and Stephanie Mah. We would not have had the pleasure of working with them without the help from Young Canada Works and Service Canada. Young Canada Works supports art, culture, and heritage in more ways than one, and deserves a thank you for working with us this summer. Service Canada also deserves thanks for the grants and contributions made to us by Employment and Social Development Canada. Both of these great programs are funded by the Government of Canada, and we could not be more grateful for their funding this summer.

C’était un été spectaculaire! Il était plein d’événements, le soleil, et les jours de grande affluence. Nous avons travaillé dur avec notre personnel d’été pour vous assurer que le musée est resté dans sa meilleure forme, et nous avons eu du plaisir le long du chemin. Bien que cet été a pris fin, nous n’oublierons pas les souvenirs ni les nouveaux amitiés.

 

Cet été, nous avons eu trois membres du personnel incroyables Tara Beuk, Melissa Lacelle, et Stephanie Mah. Nous aurait pas eu le plaisir de travailler avec eux sans l’aide de Young Canada Works et Service Canada. Young Canada Works soutient les arts, la culture et le patrimoine dans plusieurs manières, et mérite merci pour travailler avec nous cet été. Service Canada mérite également grâce pour les subventions et les contributions qui nous sont faites par Emploi et Développement social Canada. Ces deux grands programmes sont financés par le gouvernement du Canada, et nous ne pouvions pas être plus reconnaissants pour nous leur financement cet été.
