The summer of 2011 has been an exciting one…. and it’s not even over yet!
So far the Crowsnest Museum has hosted the Prairie ‘n Peaks Quilt Festival, and entered the Bellecrest, Canada Day and Rum Runners Parade. The Doors Open & Heritage Day weekend was a rousing success, especially the Teddy Bears’ Picnic on a beautiful summer Saturday. Needless to say the summer has been a busy one.
With this being my first summer at the Museum, the days have gone by in a flash. It has been a fun summer for me and I look forward to what is in store for August and September. I would like to thank the staff (Michelle and Desiree), the summer staff (Meg, Kassie, and Mel), the Board members and all our amazing volunteers for helping me out as I came into this position and for making all our summer events a success. Thank you!
Looking forward, the upcoming Crowsnest Pass Reunion looks to be a great event. On the weekend of September 23-25 the Pass should be filled with past and present residents, which should prove to be a good time. The Crowsnest Museum is excited to host the marquee event of the weekend, on Saturday the 24th, with the Harvest of Memories Gala. It will be a night of great food, amazing music, dancing, and fun! Also, we will be honouring Blairmore’s Centennial that same weekend. There will be a plethora of Blairmore history presented as another of our community townsites turns 100!
Remember, you can get weekend passes from Al Martini’s office for $75, and tickets for just the Harvest of Memories are on sale at the Crowsnest Museum for $50 each. Tickets are going fast, so get yours early because I know space is limited!
I hope your summer has been as fun and eventful as ours has been at the Crowsnest Museum. And if you need a place to beat the heat, why not stop on by the Museum and cool off… you just might learn something too.
