The York Sunbury Historical Society is starting its annual Fall membership drive!! I would like to give our current membership a big thank you for the past year!
Thanks to our members, in 2011 the York Sunbury Historical Society and Museum had several fabulous and sticky children’s programs, published the second War Bride issue of the Officers’ Quarters (another Officers’ Quarters is currently being prepared). The Fredericton Region Museum had thousands of visitors and hosted many group tours, a community open house, fundraisers and opened the medical exhibit! We have continued to make improvements to our artefact storage areas and have been fortunate to have had several amazing artefacts donated to the collection! It was a big year and it’s not done yet!
The Objective of the Museum is to collect, preserve and interpret historical data, records and objects relating to the history of the Province of New Brunswick, and in particular that of York and Sunbury Counties. It is the place to go to learn about the history of Fredericton and the capital region!
We hope that in 2012 we will continue what we started this year and maybe start a few new projects including a War of 1812 exhibit! So if you are a current York Sunbury Historical Society member, please renew and if you are not a member then please review our membership levels, print a membership form and join!
Your membership in York Sunbury Historical Society assures you fantastic opportunities to programs, free admission to the Museum, a subscription to the Officers’ Quarters, discounted facility rentals and an open invitation to exhibit openings, museum functions and special events.
