Qualicum Beach Museum thanks volunteers with appreciation night

The public is invited to attend and learn about revitalization plans

The Qualicum Beach Museum is inviting the public to help celebrate their many dedicated volunteers.

On Thursday, Nov. 8 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. the museum will host a volunteer appreciation night accompanied with displays from local artisans and vendors.

“We’re thanking all the people that are involved that make the museum basically happen on a regular basis and allow us to keep our doors open,” said museum manager Netanja Waddell. “It’s also going to be an opportunity for letting the public know what are plans are for the near future.”

The plan, Waddell said, is a five-phase revitalization for the museum that began in 2014.

“We’re working at it constantly and this time it was all about the second floor of our main museum building which we’re revamping, new flooring and redoing the exhibits up there,” Waddell said.

Waddell said a new exhibit coming to the museum will focus on First Nations.

“We’ve hired a local first Nations young man who will be working on that exhibit and he’ll be mentored by someone from the Royal BC Museum,” she said.

Qualicum Beach’s new mayor and council are also invited to the appreciation night to get acquainted with the museum.
