There is lots of activity these days at the museum.
Jeremy Reeves, Collections Management Intern, is working on a project, funded by Pacte Brome-Missisquoi, titled Trophies and Treasures: The Brome County Museum’s Great War Collection. The project includes an inventory of the WWI collection, creating a digital catalogue, an in-house exhibit and lastly an online exhibit. The exhibit, to be held in the Centennial Building, will open Monday November 5 under the title of “The Path to Peace: Canada’s One Hundred Days” and will focus on Canada’s role in the “Hundred Days”, a military campaign from August 8, 1918 to November 11, 1918, armistice day.
An “Official” opening will take place at a cocktail party from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on November 9. The exhibit will remain open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until March 3, 2019.
We are excited to announce that the ever popular Bring & Bid is coming back on December 1 at 6 p.m. For those of you have not experienced this evening of hilarity at the restored “Old Court House”, the evening begins with a buffet and wine. The evening continues with an auction of Antiques and Art etc. donated by our guests, proceeds going to the Brome County Historical Society. Space is limited, so reserve early.
