Annual General Meeting

society logo

It’s that time of year again, where we reflect on everything that has happened in the past year and look into the future of the Port Moody Heritage Society and the Port Moody Station Museum.  The meeting will be taking place at 7:00pm, June 18th at the Port Moody Station Museum(2734 Murray St., Port Moody).  All heritage society members are invited to attend and add their input into the general discussion as well as vote for the new board of directors for the 2012/2013 year.

The annual general meeting is extremely important in solidifying our plans for the future and continuing with our goal of preserving and sharing the heritage of Port Moody.  The society is fuelled by the commitment of our members and volunteers and we are always looking for more people to help in our goals.  If you are interested, visit the membership page or email us at info@portmoodymuseum.org and come out June 18th to learn more about this amazing organization. (In order to vote you must be a member in good standing for at least 30 days)

Curator's Corner


Curator’s Corner

Jim Millar – Manager / Curator, Port Moody Station Museum

It is a busy summer at the Museum. Our summer students sponsored by Service Canada and Heritage Canada are working well on projects. (See the student’s introductions on page 3)

Stephanie and Megan are working on displays and exhibits with Courtney’s help.

Trevor has been conducting school tours (with assistance from the rest) and working on breaking our tour programs into specific grade levels that meet the Educational guidelines. Mark has been scanning photos and assisting with the Educational Program. Courtney is also verifying the artefacts on display and will be cataloguing new accessions.

The recently renovated Freightshed (now called the Large Exhibit Room) is having new displays plus will play a major part in our Honouring Veterans event on Canada Day. There is a new screen and sound system tanks to the Port Moody Foundation. The Vancouver Foundation was the biggest supporter and the BC Arts Council also helped significantly. Lots of volunteer help with the biggest thanks to Dave Maxwell.

We have a few new folks helping Tom with the garden. Things are looking good there too but can always use more support.

Canada day is shaping up. We had a successful event in 2005 and naturally we plan this one to be ‘bigger and better’. Veteran Affairs Canada is the major supporter with assistance appreciated from the Consulate of the Netherlands and the Celebrate Committee of BC. We have at least 16 groups participating including the Consul Generals of France and the Netherlands with Veterans, old military vehicles and even a biplane! It will be great. If you have some spare time to help on Canada Day, we would appreciate the support as always and please encourage everyone to attend.

Membership is another important area to encourage people to become members. Important for sourcing grant monies. 2007 membership for the rest of the year is only $5. If you haven’t joined, please do and try to find some friends to join as well.

I took my first 3-week vacation in ten years, travelling with my wife, Brenda to Ireland. We had a ‘grand’ trip driving around the Island on the ‘wrong side of the road and staying at B&Bs. I will put on a slide show in September if encouraged enough – actually there are some very good pictures.
