Letter: Take time to visit museum

You can all be part of this special place, please take the time and come and visit us. You won’t be disappointed! writes Joe Mottishaw.

How many of you have ever heard the old English saying, “You don’t know where you’re going until you know where you’ve been”? This saying could be easily applied to the rich history of the Boundary area.

With that said, the Boundary Museum has done a great job of capturing and showing our local history. We should all be extremely proud to show off this great heritage.

The Boundary Museum, located on Reservoir Road, highlights our wonderful Doukhobor history along with various other cultures, artifacts, the environment, wildlife, education, mining and forestry. It is truly a special place and provides an educational experience.

From our dedicated manager, the knowledgeable archivist, to the gracious donators, members, volunteers, part-time staff and the board directors, so much hard work and effort have made the museum more successful.

When you read comments in the guest book like, “Awesome, first rate, love this place, very educational, fascinating, fabulous, beautiful,” one can easily see that this museum impacts every visitor in a positive way.

These visitors come from all over B.C., Canada, and include people from Europe, the U.S.A. and Australia.

You can all be part of this special place, please take the time and come and visit us. You won’t be disappointed!

(The museum is open Tuesday through Friday, except for a holiday break of Dec. 16 through to Jan. 12, 2016).
