Museum Cowboy Christmas this Saturday

The Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin has two major fund raisers coming up in the next few weeks, the first this weekend.

The Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin has two major fund raisers coming up in the next few weeks, the first this weekend.

The museum’s eighth annual Cowboy Christmas will once again be held in the Gibraltar Room of the Cariboo Memorial Complex this Saturday, Nov. 17, says museum manager Pat Skloblanuik.

The Cowboy/Western Trade Show runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This event features a trade show with cowboy and western arts and crafts from around the region, a silent auction, and an open mic for anyone who might like to get up and sing a country tune or two. This event has free admission, plus a concession.

Tickets to the evening Cowboy Concert are $15 and available at the museum in advance or at the door.

 

The concert starts in the Gibraltar Room at 7 p.m. and features award-winning singer, songwriters and musical stylings of Horsefly artists Pharis and Jason Romero, the Cariboo’s own cowboy poets Frank Gleeson and Bruce Rolph, and rounding out the evening will be the song styles of Stanley Stump.

 

 

 

The museum’s annual Christmas tea and bake sale will be held in the museum on Saturday, Dec. 1.

The museum currently has a fundraising raffle underway. Tickets are $5 each on a two night stay and $125 meal voucher at the 108 Mile Hills Health Ranch, donated by the Hills Health Ranch. The draw will take place at the Christmas tea and bake sale on Dec. 1.

 

 

Tickets are being sold at the museum and will be on sale at the Cowboy Christmas, Nov. 17.

 

Skloblanuik reminds the public that anyone wishing to nominate someone for the BC Cowboy Hall of Fame must do so by Dec. 1, 2012 to be considered for 2013 induction.
