Starting a Museum # 10

Published Fri, Aug 2 2013 7:42 AM

We worked hard to get ready for the Boundary Bay Airshow on July 27. As our museum is going to be situated there it was important for us to have a presence and raise the awareness about us in the community. One of the local newspaper ran an article about the museum on the 26th, it all helps.



We had a 10x10 tent and parked our home built simulator next to the tent. Early morning set up and preparation for the many visitors to the airshow went well even if the tent rental company had to get more concrete weights so our tent would not fly away. Looks like Boundary Bay is blessed with energetic winds.



We had a draw for a museum t-shirt and a framed Corsair photo that would be given to anybody who donated $ 300.00 to the museum. The framed photo is still with us, but we had lots of entries for the t-shirt draw and gave out many brochures and stickers to the kids who lined up to experience our simulator even if it was not working. There was no power available and we have yet to install the flat screen and the computer.



A supporter of the museum came and did face paintings of a lot of kids for a museum donation and she promised to be back next year for the whole day, which will make us very busy.

We talked to hundreds..if not a thousand people and found some people who wants to be involved as volunteers. Our museum newsletter sign up on the website has been very busy after the show and we feel that the effort was worth it all.
