Museum hosts Minister of Culture

We were pleased to host Honourable Heather Klimchuk, Minister of Culture on August 31st. Also travelling with her were John Tuckwell, Director of Alberta Culture Communications; Barb Toker, Public Affairs Officer; Jeremy Block, Chief of Staff & Shannon Marchand, Assistant Deputy Minister. Touring the Minister was our very own MLA, Honourable Frank Oberle, Associate Minister of Services for Persons with Disabilities.
Minister Klimchuk was especially interested in the local partnerships that have been created in the heritage sector in the north. The Museum invited some our partners to attend and it was wonderful to share our time with representatives from the Sir Alexander Mackenzie Historical Society, Peace of Art, Peace River & District Genealogy Society, our own advisory board and the Heritage Places Committee.

  It was a lovely time of touring and sharing ideas and issues. Thank you to the Minister and her team for coming to visit and to the Honourable Frank Oberle as well.
