This week, our local Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum is holding a gala fundraising dinner for the restoration of the Vimy Memorial. Architect Julian Smith will discuss his work on the project that is taking place in France, all as part of the Canada 150 celebrations.
This is bound to be an interesting evening. There will be dinner, the talk, live music, and even a silent auction. If you’re interesting, you might be able to purchase some last minute tickets by calling the museum at 253-7013, or dropping by the Carleton Place Chamber of Commerce. Tickets are $50 each, but you’ll get a lot of bang for your buck from the sounds of it!
What a great way to do something BIG in our little town!
