Museum partners with Kinsmen to produce awesome commemorative calendar

The Kinsmen Club of Stratforkinsmen2017calendar_coverd,  in partnership with the Stratford Perth Museum, has produced a commemorative calendar for 2017. The committee carefully selected 12 historic images – one from each month, creating this great keepsake. The images, which were provided by the Stratford-Perth Archives as well as the Stratford Festival Archives, create a visual chronology of key events in Stratford’s history. An iconic picture from the interior of the CNR Shops graces the cover. The earliest historical event is April 1909 when the CNR Shops announced a massive expansion and the most recent is from the City Hall sale controversy in 1971. The calendars are just $10 with the Stratford Perth Museum receiving some of the proceeds. The remainder of the proceeds will go to local Kinsmen projects. The Kinsmen are also making the calendar available to other not-for-profits, such as sports teams, to sell as their own fundraisers. The calendars are available at a number of Stratford locations, including the Stratford Perth Musuem. Other locations include Black Angus Bakery, Black Angus Restaurant, Blowes Stationary, Domino’s Pizza, Orr Insurance, Sinclair Pharmacy, Queen’s Inn, West End Pharmacy or any Kinsmen member. The calendar can also be purchased online at For more information go to or Contact the Kinsmen Club of Stratford at or 519 274-5781 To contact Stratford Perth Museum, General Manager John Kastner at or 519-393-5311
