Museum Aims High – Seeks Leaders


Port Moody, BC, May 14, 2008 – “We are not a sleepy little museum in a corner of a bedroom suburb.” So says Dianna Brown, President of the Port Moody Heritage Society, the group that oversees the Port Moody Station Museum. Brown has big plans for the Museum and is looking to build the base of community leaders that can help make it happen. On Thursday, May 22nd from 7:30pm to 8:30pm, the Museum will host an information session for those interested in becoming a board member. The evening will include a quick review of the Museum’s plans, a short tour of the Museum’s significant collection and an outline of some of the Museum’s opportunities.

“There are literally thousands of new families moving to Port Moody. We want to give these people an understanding of the community in which they live” says Brown .

The Museum’s ambitious plans include a series of displays over several years that will show various parts of Port Moody’s history. The Museum will draw on its collection of over 10,000 artifacts to make these exhibitions happen. The Museum also plans to shift its events calendar to focus on the Museum collection. “We want to host events to open our exhibitions and displays” noted Brown. “We are very proud of our collection and we want to be out in the forefront of small Museums in Metro Vancouver, showing our collection. We aim to be the best small museum in Metro Vancouver.” Big plans for a small facility. Not too big, says Brown. “The key to meeting our new goals will be harnessing the energies of additional board members. This is why we’re hosting a leadership opportunities night.”

Who might be interested in attending such an event? Jim Millar, the Museum’s Manager Curator notes that it could be anyone. “From students looking to add skills to their resume, to seasoned retirees who want to give back to their community. We are really looking forward to expanding our volunteer team.” Volunteer applications will be available at the session.

The Port Moody Station Museum (http://vcn.bc.ca/pmmuseum) is located at 2734 Murray Street in Port Moody, next to Rocky Point Park.
