Busy Summer Student Worker

Tenaisha, our summer student, is a busy young woman, who besides the day to day maintenance requirements of the museum, is also assisting in cataloguing new artifacts, and under our volunteers' supervision is also restoring some recently acquired artifacts.
 She has also conducted a number of tours. It is a shame we only have her for 8 weeks.
In this photo Tenaisha is busy digitizing our catalogued artifacts. They will be cross referenced under catalogue number and name of donor.

Kevin Bonish Donation

Thank you to Kevin Bonish for his donation of sports and school memorabilia. The acquisitions committee is in the process of sorting and deciding what can be kept according to our mission statement and limited space.

I am quite excited by the photo record of one room school houses taken circa 1949 for Cupar School Unit #28.  Many if not most of these schools no longer exist.

We are fortunate to now have a record of 73 schools and one day we hope to find those that are missing.

WWI Display

This summer's special display on WWI has been completed and is now up at the museum.


After the summer many of the framed items will be kept in a binder for future reference
and accessible for future displays and research. Also of interest are numerous attestation
papers and letters from the front between 1914-1918 written by local soldiers serving overseas.
