Thank you to all who contributed their thoughts and impressions by completing our survey.

On Friday November 23rd, we used the demographics and your ratings of museum activities as a jumping-off point for a day of reflection on the past, and assessment of the present, leading to a plethora of ideas for the future. Five members of the community worked alongside five museum volunteers, under the capable guidance of our facilitators - a special thank you to each and every one!

In the months ahead, we will continue the process of developing our strategic plan to include the “how, where, when and who”. From there, it will be presented to the Annual Meeting, and new volunteers will be welcomed to put it into practice.
