During the June 25 Summer Fest the museum had a lot of visitors, including the Brennen family who enjoyed looking at the artifacts and books, and relaxing in the comfy chairs!
Thanks to Terri McCormack who graciously donated many photos, articles and artifacts to the museum in honor of her late step father, Comox legendary man, John Marinus.  Terri created 15 wonderful posters for John’s recent memorial. Museum Staff were able to create accessible binders from those posters. These binders of the life of John Marinus are now available for viewing. Thank you, Terri McCormack!
