The Summerland Museum and Heritage Society’s mission is to preserve and promote Summerland’s history.

The society is dedicated to making our little museum a place of education, activity and enjoyment.

A total of 148 residents, community originations and businesses have purchased or renewed their memberships. These memberships and donations are an important part of the museum’s fundraising. In addition, the municipality, the province and the Department of Canadian Heritage have provided grants and in-kind services.

The museum’s exhibit, Toys from Days Gone By, is being dismantled to make room for a new Japanese Exhibit to open during Asian Month in May.

The museum’s Annual General Meeting will be held Saturday, March 2 at 7 p.m. at the IOOF Hall on Main Street.

A short meeting will be followed by a sneak preview of the Japanese exhibit, Doe Shi Kai.

Two new board members are still needed.  Those who have a passion for history and an interest in keeping the spirit of our pioneers alive are asked to contact the museum for more information.
