If you are thinking of a special gift for someone, you can purchase a membership for another person honouring Christmas, a birthday, an anniversary, graduation, thank you or any other celebrations. It’s a wonderful way to add a family name to Summerland’s heritage.

There are four convenient ways to purchase a museum membership:

• Visit www.summerlandmuseum.org and follow the prompts.

• Download the membership application form, complete it and mail with a cheque to Box 1491, Summerland, B.C. V0H 1Z0. (Please make cheques out to Summerland Museum and Archives Society)

• Purchase in person at the Summerland Museum during our open hours, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday.

• Visit the museum’s display booth on Sept. 25 at the Summerland Fall Fair celebration, Memorial Park and downtown Summerland.

“Your membership will be recognized and greatly appreciated.” said Pat McCutcheon, membership chair of the Summerland Museum and Archives Society. “We are so happy that people are joining the organization to help preserve Summerland’s unique history. This is a special area of our country and we, the citizens (past and present), play a pivotal role in remembering.”
