Rossland Recollections is a Senior-focused Speaker Series where pillars of the Rossland community spend time recounting the stories that make up the very foundation of Rossland culture and community.
Join the Museum for select Wednesday afternoon presentations where we will enjoy snacks, refreshments and stories of days past that have become legends, lore, and the origin stories of our special place in the heart of the BC interior. This programming, in partnership with local seniors, is open to all ages from the youngest of old souls to the oldest of the young-at-heart.
