Field Trip

This month, the museum gals saw several historic sites in Red Deer, and one in Innisfail. The day was a blast! As museum/tourism assistants, we believe that it is important to inform visitors of other sites to see in communities not far from ours! Here are some of our favourite moments!

Lacombe Museums

Due to the number of residents and visitors that were in the city for Canada Day and Lacombe days, our local Museums saw a large number of visitors during the month of July. The combined attendance at the Michener House Museum, the Flatiron Interpretive Centre, and the Blacksmith Shop Museum reached over 1,000 visitors for the month of July alone. Marie Péron, the Museums’ new Executive Director since May, looks forward to a busy fall with events and programs that will continue to draw in visitors into the Museums.

Historical Society Pancake Breakfast

The Lacombe & District Historical Society hosted its annual fundraising Pancake Breakfast on Saturday July 16th during Lacombe Days. The breakfast was a great success due to large attendance, live music and of course tasty pancakes and sausages. Many local residents came out to enjoy the festivities as well as visitors who were in town celebrating Lacombe Days. The historical society thanks everyone who came and showed their support – we hope that you had a good time.

A big thank you goes out to all of the dedicated volunteers who helped make the Pancake Breakfast the success that it was. Live music performed by Edna Beck, Shirley and Fred Doberstein, Carrol and Murray Gordon, Don and Betty Monroe, and George Sim entertained the hungry crowd and even got some people up and dancing after eating their breakfast.
