-We got to the Arnprior & District Museum in time to wave goodbye to several of the volunteers who had come to their pre-Christmas party.
Curator Janet Carlile was on hand to thank the many volunteers who make the Museum work. She also announced that she was thankful to the town and people of Arnprior who support the Museum.
One volunteer was particularly impressed with the way students from Algonquin College put in so much time and effort to work near miracles every year with new exhibits, and this year, a kit to bring aspects of the Museum to local schools and other places.
In the second photo, Three volunteers are looking at a photo of firefighters and an old fire engine they believe might be the one that’s on display beside them.
During the party some of the volunteers spoke with wonder at how the fire engine actually fit through the doors behind the volunteers in this photo. Someone else remembered that the floor had to be reinforced to handle the weight of the vehicle.
