Creston Museum hosting hands-on cleanup event

Web Lead

Many know that the Creston Museum has lovely grounds, and it also has about 5,000 square feet of display space. Over the winter, all that space can get a bit dusty and dirty, and there’s always some yard work that needs to be done to get the place looking good for more than 3,000 summer visitors. It’s a fair bit of work, and much more fun when there are a lot of people chipping in!

So, the museum is planning an April 23 spring cleanup event, and hopes volunteers will join in. It’s not very often that visitors get to handle artifacts and reach into display cases, so this is the event for anyone who loves getting hands-on with history. Bring a bucket, some cleaning rags, maybe a rake or two, and join in!

The cleanup event runs from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Saturday. Coffee and donuts will be provided. To learn more, contact the museum at 250-428-9262 or crestonmuseum@telus.net.
