Renovations suggested for museum

Our position is that we are satisfied with the present museum with a few minor renovations.

Dear Editor:

I am writing on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Summerland Museum and Heritage Society.

At our monthly board meeting, we clarified our position regarding the Wharton Street project.

Our position is that we are satisfied with the present museum with a few minor renovations.

We propose to use the basement of the new RCMP building for artifact storage that is currently housed at the museum and in rental storage space.

This will alleviate our storage problem.

With this new access to storage, we will have enough room to create a pioneer school to be used by Summerland students and teachers, as well as Summer program staff.

We also recommend minor building renovations  to upgrade our loading dock in order to maintain and preserve the movement of artifacts in and out of the museum.

Our recommendations are made in the spirit of maintaining and improving the quality of our Museum and its programs.

Bev Krieger, Secretary

Summerland Museum and Heritage Society
