Press Release for Father's Day

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Who: The Port Moody Station Museum

When: Sunday, June 17, 2007 – FATHERS DAY

Where: 2734 Murray St.

Port Moody, BC (Next to Rocky Point)

CELEBRATE FATHERS DAY AT THE PORT MOODY STATION MUSEUM

The Port Moody Station Museum is once again hosting its Annual Fathers Day Lemonade and Cookie event. This year it coincides with the Grand Opening of the Freight Shed Redevelopment Project which now houses the Museums’ Exhibition Room.

Beginning in the fall of 2006, great care was taken to insure the authenticity of the renovations. “We searched long and hard for reclaimed wood for the floors and display cases,” explains Manager/Curator Jim Millar. “This was an arduous task but necessary to keep with the ambience and look of our museum.”

An old tool display, a photographic display of Port Moody Then and Now and more are here to enjoy.

The Port Moody Station Museum is owned and operated by the Port Moody Heritage Society and is part of their effort to promote increased awareness and knowledge of Port Moody’s Heritage and History.
