Canada 150

For the town of Cupar's Canada 150 Celebrations on July 1, the Cupar Museum held their annual Strawberry Social on the new deck.

We were once again delighted to be able to have Blue Country from Fort Qu'Appelle play old time music for us. As a child I remember my parents listening to Johnny Horton so their rendition brought back happy memories and I began to wonder if I had become an old timer. The band is always greatly in demand in smaller communities and so I feel a link to these other places.

The parade in the morning allowed the museum to show off their latest exhibit, a CPR baggage wagon filled with artifacts. The wagon will have a permanent space indoors at the museum. We will be labelling the artifacts and have accompanying stories about each artifact where possible.
