Northwest Network Meeting

Noreen and Lucille attended the Northwest Network meeting at the Unity Museum on Saturday.
These meetings bring together museums in our region for communicating and sharing common issues. Also MAS (Museums Association of Saskatchewan) was represented by Wendy Fitch, Director of Museum Operation Services, who brought us up to date on what is happening on the provincial scene and the plans for the future.
It is always a benefit to talk to others who share common problems and successes. The need to fund raise always results in some new interesting ways to make money.
The day is too short for what needs to be accomplished. I guess we talk too much!
We finished the day by going through a few of the buildings in the Unity Museum. What a lovely museum! (Of course, I am a bit biased when it comes to small museums!) It amazes me what a group of volunteers can accomplish. Great work, Unity! Even the cold weather didn't stop us from enjoying.

Craft Sale Table

The Royal Purple Craft Sale was on Saturday afternoon and the museum had a table selling our publications and sales goods. Although the traffic was very light, we sold a fair number of items.
