Thanks to City of Canada Council for the second grant of $1,000 received to complete the restoration of the historic 1890 map of Concord we found in our archives.
The map had suffered a bit of damage over its lifetime but thanks to Karen, our wonderful Museum Advisor, it has now be restored and mounted and will be on display at our museum in the near future.
We are grateful to the Council for this community support over the years with these grants, which have allowed us to turn out museum into one of the best local museums in the state.
If you haven’t yet visited, please come soon. You won’t be disappointed. We regularly change displays so there is always something new to see.
Our resident comedian, Patricio, thought we deserved more so he appropriated the Council’s cheque. Unfortunately the bank wouldn’t cash it for him.
(Ed: You can take him anywhere but out !!!)
