Museum Renewal

Thanks to everyone who filled out our Museum survey in April.

The purpose of survey was to gauge community interest and to create a contact list of people who would be interested in participating in a museum renewal project. We also wanted to ensure that everyone in the community had an opportunity to voice their opinions and ideas.

Those who responded were invited to an information session with a guest speaker, Colonel Jon Ambler, who is the Program Manager at the Comox Air Force Museum.   He is a strong supporter of community Museums and offered many good insights into Museum management and operations.    Later that week, we held a “community conversation” to hear feedback and gather ideas about Museum renewal.

In April and May, the walls and ceiling of the entire Museum were  scrubbed and painted, thanks to DSMS maintenance crew Dave and Fern Niedermoser and Moira Webster.   It’s looking great and we look forward to a bright new look for opening day on July 1.

Stay tuned for more news on this exciting project.

Kitchen Upgrade

New kitchen cooking area

Our kitchen renovation is complete and its ready to use.

On Saturday afternoon, June 14, we invited everyone to come in and look at the finished product. People were impressed!  Some thought we had expanded the room because it looks so much brighter and better organized. We had over 50 visitors who also enjoyed a cup of coffee and baked treat on the patio.       more..

Thanks to everyone who contributed to another successful project!

This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program.
