We had so many great entries in the “My Family Is…” Exhibit Contest! Thank you to everyone who participated! Our winner is……the Hambly family from Stittsville!

Their exhibit was a true family affair with contributions from parents Mandy and Rob, their children Jack and Lucy, and a special appearance from Shirley “Nana” Hambly who was interviewed in England. The video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/VJXmsuWnvYE.

“We hope you like our exhibit that tells family stories and favourites from grandparents to grandkids in England, America and Canada,” Mandy wrote in her submission.

“We enjoyed unearthing old photos and sharing laughs and history with each other. What a great week – stuck at home! – to work hard on a project that honours our family by illustrating what’s unique about “us”.

Goulbourn Museum’s Education Officer, Sarah Catterall says the Hambly’s exhibit showed attention to detail and had a fantastic blend of artefacts, photos, texts, and video. “The winning “My Family Is…” exhibit clearly demonstrates family working, creating, and learning together- both near and far,” says Sarah. “Well done to the Hamblys!”

Stay tuned for more fun at-home activities to be announced next week!
