Manitoba Day Celebration
Alloway Hall, MB Museum, 11am – 5 pm
MGS will be participating again this year in this arts, culture and heritage fair along with many other community organizations. This is a great opportunity for MGS to inform the general public about our organization. We need volunteers to staff our table - two volunteers for each hour (12 people could do 1 hour each). If you are available, please contact Bill Curtis (Outreach Chair) at email@example.com. The celebration includes free admission to the Museum Galleries, Science Gallery and Planetarium, special educational programming throughout the day, and a new temporary exhibit featuring fur trade materials from the Hudson Bay Co. and Archaeology collections “Trade: Materials and Ideas in Transition”. Birthday cake (Manitoba’s 145th) and other refreshments will be served later in the day. Why not volunteer for an hour and then take advantage of the free admission.
