HOMEGROWN HEROES – Free Father’s Day Event at Goulbourn Museum June 15

Step back in time this Father’s Day for Homegrown Heroes – a free family event commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the First World War and the 75th Anniversary of the Second World War.

Challenge dad in the military obstacle course, send messages in Morse Code and check out a WWII jeep. Visitors can also add the name of a loved one to the Museum’s Memorial Tree, a new addition to the site that was generously donated by the Fallowfield Tree Farm.

The event will feature military groups, demonstrators and re-enactors, games, silent auction, book sale, and an old-fashioned photo booth with professional photographers from Henry’s. The Glen Scottish Restaurant and Pub will be onsite with their Tartan Kitchen serving up their famous fish & chips.

This WWII jeep is from the personal collection of long time
Stittsville resident Jeff Mosher.

The Museum will also be launching a new exhibit that tells the story of how WWI & WWII impacted the social history of Goulbourn Township. Visitors will learn about the changing role of women, war-time economy, and the evolution of the family dynamic.

All ages are welcome and admission is free.
