Qu'Appelle Valley Network

The Qu'Appelle Network meeting was held May 11 at the train station / tourist information center in Fort Qu'Appelle. This was only my second meeting but I enjoyed it greatly. The Network has just produced a pamphlet for member museums, a calendar of events is enclosed and can be easily updated as needed. The pamphlet allows visitors to contemplate and plan day trips along this string of museums. Each one has their own focus and unique approach according to the community. Don't forget Dysart, not in the pamphlet, but in the process of joining the Network.

I also enjoy hearing activity reports by each of the museums, the variety of events and commitment of the volunteers is inspiring.
Each of the bi-annual network meeting has an educational component. This time May-Lin Polk from the Museums Association of Saskatchewan gave an informative presentation on copyright laws and how they apply to museums. Hopefully we will all share this with our home communities.
The next meeting is scheduled for October 5 in Grenfell.
