This year went by quickly here at the museum. Our summer staff were busy with tours, visitor information, cataloging artifacts, and working on their summer projects.
At our 2018 Summer Celebration event on Aug. 22, Rachel McLeod, Mika Calverley and Jenny Lyver presented their projects to a audience of 38.
Rachel's project was the Post Office Saga, she presented first. Her project included a map of the county and where every post office was, a poster with history of different pot office artifacts and a timeline, and artifacts gathered from the museum relating to the local post offices.
Mika's project was the Price Family Caravan. Her project was about the emigration of the Price family on their journey from Wyoming to Kneehill County through the eyes of the children. Her project consisted of a poster with write ups of two of the children who were on the journey with paintings done by Clayton Price, and a map showing the route taken.
Jenny's project was on the harvesting history of Kneehill County, and she presented last. Her project consisted of a poster showing harvesting history from why the pioneers first came to the county to why the wooden elevators are slowly disappearing.
Come see the hard work the summer staff has done before the museum closes for the season on Sept. 15.
