Tree of Lives
Tree of Lives - Wall of Recognition
As part of our 35th anniversary celebration, the society created a wall of recognition, which we call our “Tree of Lives.”
Mounted on a wall in the entrance room of the main museum building, is a large metal tree, which we hope to surround with leaves bearing the names of those who have made generous monetary donations to the society. At the base of the tree is a plaque engraved with the names of the first board of directors for the society. This plaque was originally mounted to the front door of the museum prior to our 2011 fire. When it was rediscovered in 2020, it was decided that the plaque should have a place of honour again. The current board of directors had it re-mounted and cleaned as best as possible, but not restored or remade. We wanted to preserve it as a reminder of our past. After all, we have risen from the ashes and this plaque is a symbol of our rebirth. Without those first directors, who were the roots of this society, we would not have grown into the society and museum that we are today. To acknowledge this, the plaque has been placed at the roots of the tree.
The leaves will be awarded (provided by the museum) for all monetary donations given which amount to $250.00 or more. If you are interested please contact the museum directly or talk to one of our board members for more information.
