This is the third blog about starting a Museum:
We got a new logo
We did not get charitable
status by the CRA (Canadian Revenue Agency). But the 4 page letter explaining why we
were not approved, taught us something. We have withdrawn the application and
can apply again at the right time.
We are carrying on as a
non-profit Society and are now trying to find out what the land we need will

Vancouver Area ? Let us know

start bugging for money, equipment etc. within the next month. Good that I have
unlimited long distance calling in my bundle.
We will carry on with the
museum and one day we will have the grand opening and you are invited.. if you
are a member.
Watch for our next blog.
