Snow is on the ground – but spring is in the air – and that means it’s almost time for our annual Easter Egg Hunt! Come up to the Museum on Saturday, March 30 to join in the hunt, try your hand at a classic egg-and-spoon race, bunny-hop your way through a sack race, enjoy some eastery-crafts, and more!

Egg Hunts start at 10:30, 11:30, 1:30, and 2:30.

If you’re interested in volunteering, get in touch with Fiona at admin@ rosslandmuseum.ca or 250-362-7722! We’re always on the hunt for face painters and egg-hiders!

Entry is by donation.

March Speaker Series: Growing Up In Remarkable Times in Rossland with Lou Corrado & Kim Deane
Lou Corrado grew up in Rossland in the later years of the Great Depression and Kim Deane following the Second World War. Having lived here for so long and through such extraordinary times, both have seen the city change and evolve to an extraordinary degree. These two long-time Rosslanders will take us on a fascinating and nostalgic journey through Rossland’s history, touching on the post-war period, the evolution of Cominco, the expansion of the skiing industry, evolving subcultures, and more! If you’re interested in Rossland’s history or you’re another long-time local looking to indulge in a little nostalgia (and maybe learn something new about your backyard!) then this is the event for you.

Our March Speaker Series event is Thursday, March 28th at pm – Entry is by donation and treats/refreshments will be provided. RSVP here <https://square.link/u/MI0mYMGs> or you can email info@rosslandmuseum.ca or call 250-362-7722.
For more information, check out our website rosslandmuseum.ca/news/2024/march-speaker or get in touch with Kaleigh at programs@rosslandmuseum.ca. We hope to see you there!
