Summer quickly came to an end and so did the 2018 season at the Dufferin Historical Museum.

“Our summer included community events such as our End of World War I Tea and Pioneer Day, both of the events were highly successful and we would like to thank the community for coming out to them,” said Trisha Aubin, President of the Dufferin Historical Museum.

Visitors stopped in to view the amazing artifacts and displays set up throughout the summer. The Museum even offered a punch card contest this year with a weekly draw for some amazing prizes donated by local businesses in the community like Syl’s Drive Inn, Kate Froese Pottery, Carman Golf Club, McGee’s, The Prices Rite, Carman Home Hardware, the Carman Pharmacy, and Vintage Landscaping.

“We owe a big thank you to Chris and Maureen Lemky who donated a 40” television as our summer Grand Prize Draw and Carla McKnight was the winner,” Aubin said. “Closing for the winter does not mean we go into hibernation until we reopen next summer as we’re excited to be working on some events that will take place during the winter.”

The fun events don’t stop because the summer did as the museum is hosting a Fundraising Paint Night at the Legion Auxilliary Hall on October 10. Tickets are available at Carman Co-op and Carman Pharmacy. December first will feature the annual Christmas at the Museum event where there will be horse-drawn wagon rides, entertainment, crafts and refreshments.

“We’re looking forward to 2019 which will see new artifacts and new events,” she adds. “We are planning our first Flea Market and Antique Sale on May 25th at the Carman Dufferin Arena as well.”
