The Middleville and District Museum gratefully acknowledges the support of the Perth and District Community Foundation who supported several of the Museum's events this season through awarding a grant of $3000. The Scarecrow Day, Apple Cider Day and School visits were supported by this grant. The money allowed the Museum to purchase materials used at events and purchase advertising.
Many community partners support the Middleville and District Museum throughout the season. Either by donating goods directly or giving special prices to the Museum, community partners help the volunteers make the events special.
Solar Fluid Coffee of Galbraith generously donates their coffee for all the Museum events.
Apples for Apple Cider Day came from the McLaren Orchards of Renfrew. Pumpkins and cornstalks for decorating our fall events came from Geobern Farm of Rosetta. Strawberries for the Strawberry Social came from Miller Bay Farm in Lombardy. Thompsontown Maple Products donated maple leaf candy suckers for school visits and delivered hay bales for the Apple Cider Day event.
Many entertainers shared their talents and their time with visitors at events.
Community members baked for Museum events. Thanks to local bakers Cyndi Carruthers and Kristen Dodds who donated treats to events. Alyssa Toshack made the slab cakes for our strawberry social.
The Museum also enjoys support from its good neighbours, Trinity United Church and Middleville Fair as we share resources.
The Middleville and District Museum volunteers are very grateful for the overwhelming support they receive from their community partners.
