The Port Moody Heritage Society announces that our Museum Coordinator Brianne Egeto will be going on Maternity Leave for a year starting January 2017! We want to wish Brianne a great year and welcome Markus Fahrner to the team who will be covering her position while she is away.

Markus is a Graphic Designer and has been volunteering at the Museum for the past 2 years. He was part of the team that built the McKnight Trench Exhibit and has been an integral part of the Trench Program. He has been involved in many school programs, talks and other trench events and always has the kids smiling after his programs!  Please stop by the Museum and introduce yourselves!

The First lady Passenger that stepped off the Port Moody Sky Train today received these beautiful flowers! The Port Moody Heritage Society wanted to recreate what happened 130 years ago when the first Passenger train came into Port Moody. (Pictured behind is the first passenger train that came into Port Moody on July 4, 1886, with the lady receiving flowers).
Thank you to Arlene Wiebe from Inlet Floral Designs for creating this beautiful arrangement.

Seniors Engagement at the Museum

 Seniors Engagement at the Port Moody Station Museum

The Port Moody Station Museum will be holding a  meeting on November 6th at 2:30pm to plan the action for Seniors Engagement. The Port Moody Heritage Society has received a grant from the Vancouver Foundation to develop a project that would encourage seniors to participate at the Museum on a frequent basis.  This would benefit seniors in keeping them involved with their community and benefit the Museum in being relevant to their community. Everyone is welcome.

WHERE: At the Port Moody Station Museum, 2734 Murray St. Port Moody

WHEN: November 6, 2016 2:30 pm

WHY: To be a vital part of the community, the Museum must stay relevant and meet community expectations.  Seniors are an important part of the community and have their own needs: feeling of self-worth, being included, being productive and sense of accomplishment.

HOW:  With the support of the Vancouver Foundation, the Port Moody Heritage Society will engage seniors to determine what projects and activities would entice seniors to participate with the Port Moody Station Museum.  The goal being to develop a project that has seniors help the Museum while the Museum helps them.  Many seniors feel lonely and isolated; not contributing to the betterment of their community.  The Museum needs to be relevant to the community in order to meet its mission.  We need to develop a win-win project for both seniors and the Museum.
