Pickering Museum Village staff are conducting focus group sessions and surveys to collect public feedback as they work to develop a new Strategic Plan.
Pickering Museum Village is Durham Region’s largest living history museum. Over 7,000 school children visit the site annually to learn about the past as they participate in hands-on learning activities. The Museum has won awards for its volunteer program and for outstanding achievement in public programming and interpretation.
Continuing to strive for excellence, the Coordinator, Museum Operations, Katrina Pyke, is seeking public input to shape the Museum’s next six years.
Want more programs for seniors? Looking for world-class exhibits to save a drive into Toronto? Yearning for a place where you can discuss critical issues facing society? Maybe you want a place to share ideas and skills with people of similar interests. Now is the chance to voice what you would like your community museum to be.
Public Input Sessions will be held for those who register to participate, on Monday, April 3 in the evening, and on April 10 in the afternoon, at the Recreation Complex. Register by calling Customer Care at 905.420.2222 or emailing email@example.com and choosing the afternoon or evening session.
