Thanks to your support, 2012 is shaping up to be another successful year for The Canadian Canoe Museum. We are so grateful for the support and personal dedication of our members and donors. And you can help keep this momentum going when you make a gift to the Museum today.
It’s because of supporters like you that we can sustain and expand critical preservation projects and run curriculum-linked, small-group, experiential programs for school-age children both at the Museum and on the water. Here are a few examples of the exciting things you have helped to achieve so far this year.
- Represent Canada at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant as the only Canadian vessel to salute her Majesty the Queen. What better vessel to represent Canada than a canoe?
- Bring the Enys Canoe, one of the oldest known birch bark canoes (dating back to the late 1700s) and a significant piece of Canadian history back to Canada after being kept for the last 230 years at the Enys estate in Cornwall, England.
- Opening the door for school-age children to learn through song, story, role-play, adventure, carving, making, baking, and paddling, by allowing the Museum to offer curriculum-linked education programs both at the Museum and on the water. And in French!
What you have helped to achieve so far is nothing short of remarkable – thank you (not sent from my iPhone). Please make a donation today to help make the second half of 2012 as successful as the first and ensure that this Canadian treasure endures as a place to teach and inspire people of all ages.
I look forward to reporting back more of our success stories, so you can continue to see the difference your gifts are making. Thanks for stepping up.
