A Soldier's Life

I found the following article in the Cupar Herald dated 24 August 1916.  No source is given.  It gives a different perspective and perhaps a sense of humour.  You may judge for yourself.

1950's push cart

The museum would like to thank Dennis Demyen
for the donation of a 1950's push cart
from the estate of his wife Barb.
The push cart was lovingly used
 through her childhood years
and will become an important feature 
of our summer display.

Qu'Appelle Valley Network May Meeting

Rebecca from White City and Pat from Dysart get a chance after lunch for some personal conversation.

I realize a lot of people don't like meetings but not only is it a time to find out what other small museums are planning and what are there challenges, but how we can all share and help.

This was our first network meeting in Cupar.
Next meeting will be in Dysart scheduled for
October 15.

If any of you feel like day trips this summer and fall, here is the schedule of events for our group.
