Residents encouraged to attend museum anniversary
The Nose Creek Valley Museum will be celebrating its 25th anniversary this month and is planning some good old-fashioned family fun.
On Sept. 22, the museum is inviting the community to enjoy free admission and partake in entertainment and activities from noon to 4 p.m.
“Young or old, there will be something that will interest everyone,” said Nose Creek Valley Museum President Dan McKinnon in a press release.
He added there will be about 10 activity stations including three-legged races, food trucks, bands, miniature horse rides, apple juice making, rope making and more.
The museum was built and is operated completely by volunteers who have collected artifacts and period pieces that represent the history of the Nose Creek Valley, which extends from Crossfield and Madden all the way into Calgary. McKinnon said the museum is home to more than 20,000 artifacts and is open year-round from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday and admission is only $2.
Volunteers are still needed for the celebration and residents interested in volunteering can contact the Nose Creek Valley Museum at 403-948-6685 or by email at email@example.com
