The Station Museum Goes to Tri Cities VolunteerFest

Tri Cities VolunteerFest

This weekend the Port Moody Station Museum was at the Tri-Cities VolunteerFest at Coquitlam Centre. It was a fantastic event put on by Community Volunteer Connections, where we and other local organizations had the opportunity to meet enthusiastic people looking to give back to the community. We also got to chat with Coquitlam’s mayor Richard Stewart and MP Finn Donnelly. Thanks to CVC for allowing us to connect with so many great new volunteers!

More Mention of the Museum – TriCities Examiner – examiner.com

There was more mention of the museum relating to the Heritage Week Display honouring sports and athletes of the past. Lynne Melcombe wrote in their TriCities Examiner section as part of their “Vanouver’s Winter Games 2010” section about it:

Port Moody Station Museum has come up with an interesting way to honour the 2010 Winter Olympics and local heritage at the same time. From February 10 to 28, they will be hosting a display of sports and recreation from days past at the Port Moody City Hall Galleria and the Museum.
