Bresaylor Happenings: Museum looks forward to an exciting year

New website one project for 2024.
Bresaylor Heritage Museum will be hosting district tours this summer.

BRESAYLOR, Sask. — Bresaylor Heritage Museum's annual general meeting was held April 14 at the Paynton Seniors’ Centre.

The board proudly reflected on the museum's 40th anniversary, a momentous occasion that was celebrated with over 100 attendees. The legacy of Joe Sayers, whose collection formed the foundation of the museum, was remembered. The contributions of Velma Foster, the curator and founder, and long-term directors Margaret Currie, Marie Ferguson, Helena Caplette, Marion McDougall and Margaret Webb were also acknowledged.

One of the year's highlights was the successful historic walk, organized in collaboration with the Saskatchewan History and Folklore Society. Hugh Henry led the walking group, which chose a different place to walk in Saskatchewan. This engaging event allowed participants to delve into the rich history of our community.

Bob Peterson organized and narrated the tour of local historical points of interest.

The tour was so well received the museum has decided to offer to host tours by arrangement. On July 28, potluck Sunday, guests will be invited for a driving tour.

The committee welcomed two new board members, Elaine Brau and Kathy Park.

The board has an ambitious list of accomplishments for 2024, including a new website.
