Thanks to all of you who added a donation to your annual renewal and those who used the Canada Helps Button. You have taken us over the top.
And special thanks to the Six Special Friends whose pledges mean that every donation (up to that total of $3,000) was matched. The goal was to raise a grand total of $6,000, and that will allow us to upgrade and complete the lighting of our great Exhibition Hall. Donations above and beyond our goal are being designated for other necessary capital projects.
You can still be a part of this venture. To be taken to our Canada Helps Donation Page just click here >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
SPECIAL CHRISTMAS GIFTS FROM THE GIFT SHOP
A Sifton-Cook Heritage Centre Mug or T-Shirt would make a great and unique Christmas gift. The mugs come in four different styles and the T-shirts in various sizes. Wooden toys and books are also available.
MODEL ORE CAR UNVEILED
On our closing weekend a 1/4 size model of the “made-in-Cobourg” Crossen ore car was unveiled by its creator, George Parker, and Murray King, who had turned the wheels. Red oak cubes replaced iron ore as the workings of the car were demonstrated to an appreciative audience. Beside being an exhibit in its own right, the model is serving as a template for a full size recreation. (more….)
