The Tri-City News – Scour your collection for collectibles

The article describes the upcoming displays of “vintage sports equipment” which will be on display next month for Heritage Week. The display will be at the Port Moody City Hall galleria and in the Port Moody Station Museum. We, The Port Moody Heritage Society, are looking for more items to include in the exhibit. The theme this year for Heritage Week is “Sports and Recreation”. There are items in the museum collection already,but we can always use more.
