Today, as we should every day, we remember those who volunteered, sacrificed, served, fought, and died, for our freedom. We thank you. We salute you. You made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. We will never forget. We will remember you.

After a great year, the Gem of the West Museum Society board members unwound during its Christmas party on Friday, December 4, with some honoured guests. We had a great time fun game planned by Bonnie, and food from Sandra and Rachael from Kaba Catering. We also honoured Duncan Lloyd with an honorary lifetime membership for all his dedication to the museum and the indigenous exhibit. Our evening included a surprise visit from Santa, who handed out some presents.
