Museum's 18th Anniversary Celebration


This past Sunday marked a very special occasion for the Museum of Logy Bay-Middle Cove-Outer Cove. Having opened our doors for the very first time exactly 18 years before, we held an open-house in honour of all the hard-work and progress that this museum has seen over the years.

We had a wonderful turn out, with seniors congregating for tea, coffee and cake, while children coloured nearby. There were many kind words said about the museum, as I spoke with visitors who were both amazed and nostalgic looking through our collection.

We had visitors from both VOCM and The Northeast Avalon Times, who knew just how special the day was for us. VOCM described the museum as "a hidden gem." We hope to at least change the hidden part of that statement.

I would like to thank everyone who came out to help us celebrate this wonderful occasion. And of course, I would like to thank the heritage committee for volunteering their time and putting this museum together in the first place. The dedication of this group of people is unbelievable. We hope to celebrate the museum again next year, and for many more years to come.
