The Museum’s gift Shop Sale was a complete success! Dec. 1 was a particularly busy day with the Christmas Tea happening in the Visitors’ Centre. As people came to shop, many took time to sit down and enjoy a cup
of tea or coffee and sweets.
Our guests included a Citizen of the Year, the Mayor and a Councillor.
Two authors, Doris Lee and Sage Birchwater, joined us and appeared to be having a good time as they promoted their new books.
All in all, very pleasant company. We look forward to next year as we hope to make this an annual event.
Thanks to Patty for allowing us to host this in her ‘space’.
Whatever Happened to… did you ever belong to an organization or club in Quesnel that is now defunct?
Quesnel Museum and Archives is interested in your minutes, memorabilia and/or anything pertaining to the operation of that club.
It is part of Quesnel’s history and,s as such, deserves to be preserved for posterity.
Bring in all and anything that had to do with sporting and cultural groups, social clubs and local businesses. Just call the Museum and/or bring in your treasures.
As 2013 looms on the horizon and the Mayan predictions have yet to come true, Quesnel Museum and Archives is preparing to celebrate their 50th anniversary.
Commissioners are searching the archives for events that occurred on a specific date 50 years ago, week by week.
Commissioner Bruce Steele has been busy gathering articles for the Observer to keep you apprised as to what was happening 50 years ago in Quesnel. And believe me, the old adage about “Everything Old is New Again” could never be truer! 50 years ago they were talking about fluoridation in our water
system and for many years after! And the talk was about a new museum!
If you have any information or facts or stories about that period in Quesnel’s history, don’t hesitate to stop by and tell us more.
Hope to see you as you “Pass Time” at the Quesnel Museum.
The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others’ burdens, easing others’ loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas.
Honey Affleck is chair of the museum commission and regular Observer contributor.
