VAL HUGHES MEMORIAL FUND
Commemorates a long time supporter of the Museum and local history. The Hughes fund supports excellence in the educational workshops presented to youth attending the Museum’s regional Heritage Fair in May of each year. Heritage Fair is a national program that inspires young people about Canadian cultural heritage.
SHARE OUR HISTORY FUND
Supports the digitization of the Museum’s historical photograph collection and makes it accessible via the Museum’s web site. A grant from the Irving K Barber BC History Digitization Program enabled the Museum to initiate web access and funds are now sought to increase the number of accessible images. The collection includes a wealth of images documenting all aspects of community history.
