CCCM displays Dr. John Sherinís Curve Lake Memoriabilia
The public is invited to Christ Church Community Museum to see this seasonís special exhibits. Watch for Dr. John Sherinís exhibit. Dr. Sherin, the last government appointed doctor to Curve Lake First Nations, was made Honorary Chief of Curve Lake after serving as doctor there for 18 years. He has carefully kept the gifts given to him on his leaving for over 40 years. The CCCM committee is honoured to have them on display for the summer season. Included in the display is a handsome headdress, a leather jacket expertly sewn with leather and decorated with beading and a birch bark guest book. All items are fine works of art.
Look for the medicine wheel and display of native, settlers and medicinal plants. You may want to take time to watch our new 20 minute DVD showing the restoration process at the historic stone building over the last almost 50 years. Also look for the Strickland family history, photos and artifacts of Lakefield, DVDís of the Bill Twist Collection and information on the burials from 1855 to 1886.
The church museum is open daily until Labour Day from 1.00 p.m. to 4.00 p.m. A volunteer guide is there to welcome you. For further info you may call Gwen McMullen 705-652-3024.
