Cupar Museum 20th Anniversary

Congratulations to the museum in Cupar on it's upcoming 20th anniversary June 3. It is difficult to believe how the time has passed. In actuality it took 5 years of hard work, planning and fund raising for the museum volunteers before the official grand opening in 1995. The success of the various fund raising activities could not have happened without the support of the wider community. The Masonic Hall was moved on site and the Town Council gave the old curling rink to the museum. Besides the many hours volunteers spent salvaging materials and gathering artifacts, much appreciated financial assistance was provided by the Cupar Lions Club, The Hungarian Dance Club and The Cupar Historical Society. The museum in 1994 was also able to have a full time employee for 21 weeks through New Careers Corps to assist with final preparations.

As we collect information and documentation on various organizations in our towns it is important we do not forget about the development of our own museums.
