Oldtimers reminisce at Museum social

The room was abuzz with laughter and conversation at the South Similkameen Museum’s afternoon social at the Anglican Church hall.

The room was abuzz with laughter and conversation at the South Similkameen Museum’s afternoon social at the Anglican Church hall.

Many pioneers of the South Similkameen valley showed up to share their memories of the old days.   This is becoming an annual affair that has proven very popular.  The stories of the early days are a great hit with many visitors to the museum and any chance we have of hearing more of these wonderful memories are a bonus for the museum.  Through these social afternoons we have gleaned some memorable photos that are scanned and catalogue on the computer.

Ten new members joined at the tea and we made $150 towards maintaining irreplaceable artifacts and stories to have them accessible to all visitors.
