Happy December Everyone!

Once again I was asked to come in and work a few hours this month at the Museum – mainly reception. I took a photo that shows where I work – the reception desk. I also help in the Museum shop, where we sell local carvings, jewellery, books and various other items. This is a very enjoyable place to work – lots of tourists arriving and many locals that come to see this fabulous museum. It is well worth the time and money to stop in to see all the displays – everything from the Native memorabilia to the logging, fishing as well as a 30 seat theatre which features the Ripple Rock explosion from 1958 as one of the three movies available for viewing.

Today between 4-6 p.m. we had the Christmas tree light up at the Museum. I was not working so Peter and I decided to stop by and participate. This tree is HUGE and it was decorated in gold to keep in the 50th anniversary theme for 2008. Kris Kringle arrived, in his antique costume, and started the count down to the light up and then stayed to say hi to all the children that came to speak to him. We also listened to live Christmas music, sung by two local women, while the staff served everyone oranges and hot chocolate, whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce – hmmm – very tasty. The Museum put on a very festive light up and the 150 + people who stopped in really enjoyed themselves. See you later, Peter & Connie
