Meet the new board at the museum tea

The Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin’s annual Christmas tea and bake sale coming up this Sunday.

The Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin’s annual Christmas tea and bake sale coming up this Sunday will provide a great opportunity to visit with friends over a formal tea and meet some of the brand new museum board members.

The tea and bake sale takes place this Saturday, Dec. 5 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

At the museum’s recent annual general meeting four incumbent board members were re-elected: Margery Schuk, Tom Curtis, LeRae Haynes and Sharon McDonald.

The museum society members also elected nine new board members: Lisa Anderson, Minette Fawcett, Cathie Hamm, Becky Bravie, Penny Hutchinson, Mike McDonough, Shirley-Pat Chamberlain, Pam Mahon and Laurie Wilson.

Longtime board member Diana French, who retired from the board this year, says she is happy to see that all 13 positions on the museum board have been filled this year, which hasn’t been the case for a number of years.

The new board is scheduled to meet later this month to elect an executive committee.

Museum memberships will also be available at the tea and bake sale for $5.
