Keep the Home Fires Burning ~ A History in Action Saturday

August 30, 2014
10:00 am to 4:30 pm

Great Britain declared war on Germany on August 8, 1914, and suddenly Canada was at war.  Pickering's boys signed up, some never to return again.  Find out what those left behind did to support their boys at the front.  From ration recipes, to local propaganda, come out and get a taste of how Pickering kept the home fires burning.

Every September, PMV presents its dramatic play, "A Spirit Walk:  Call to Rebellion" about Pickering's part in the 1837 Rebellion.  Come out and learn more about how this march changed government in Canada forever, and the sacrifices our community's families made for political change.  See our museum's treasured rebellion box, and learn how these amazing trinkets were handcrafted by the rebels in Toronto Jail.  Also enjoy our temporary exhibit:  "A Family Story:  The Asahel Scott Box".
