Goulbourn Museum has recently hired Lord Cultural Resources to create a ten-year strategic plan for the Museum. To start the process, staff met with John Wright, Susan Dunlop and Brad King to discuss the project and to show them the site. While the Lord Cultural Resources representatives were here, we noticed that John Wright was sketching away. We were very pleased to see that John had added his water coloured sketches (above) to his personal blog. You can view his blog here. Thank you John for sharing your sketches with us!

Tonight we have a group of 24 Sparks coming to the Museum. We’re excited to have such a big group in, and we’re also looking forward to trying a new craft If you’re local, you may know that Richmond, ON (part of the greater City of Ottawa) was named after the Duke of Richmond, and he died of rabies on the shores of the Jock River during a visit to the village named after him. It is believed that he contracted rabies from a soldier’s pet fox three months before his death.
A sad story, we know, but a fox craft helps us tell the story of the Duke to youth groups. And the fox is so cute! For more information about our programs or to book your group, email Tracey, our Education & Community Programmer.
