Exhibit Themes

EACH YEAR the Sifton-Cook Heritage Centre changes its theme and displays.

2014 – Cobourg and the Military

For this theme we will be counting on past and present citizens of Cobourg and their familes to help us tell the story.  Percy Climo has done us a great favour by compiling two books on Cobourg and the First World War.  But our military history is much more than that, and we'll be looking for items and anecodotes to help bring it all to life.  Please let us know if you have something to share.  (Contact us by email or by phone 905-373-7222)
