Because of the ongoing and developing Coronavirus pandemic, The Stratford Perth Museum is postponing our big fundraiser and celebration, The Innkeepers' Dinner.
Instead of April 4 it will now be September 19, still at The Arden Park Hotel, and still sponsored by Wightman.
If you have already bought tickets they will be honoured Sept. 19. If you can't make it that day and you would like a refund - no problem - just give us a call at 519-393-5311 and we will make that happen.
Thanks so much for your understanding and -- we'll see you in September!
The Stratford Perth Museum held its Annual General Meeting February 19 and among regular business, elected a new board of directors.
The rest of the board ...
George Jansen - secretary
Janice Richardson - Treasurer
Martin Ritsma - City of Stratford representative
Doug Kellum - County of Perth representative

March Break Camp | Museum Curators
What does it take to put together an exhibition at the museum? Museum Curators will get a special 'behind the scenes' tour of our Collections Room. Working as a curatorial team, campers will develop an exhibition theme, choose artefacts, create personal objects, write didactics and finally curate a group exhibition in the museum. Parents are invited on the final day for a celebration and tour of the Museum Curators hard work.
March Break Camp Details:
Date: March 16-20, 2020
Cost: $180 (Museum Members) , $200 (Non Members)
Historically, the honourees would be announced at the Stratford Rotary Club's Rural-Urban Dinner in April. However, since that event is cancelled, this year the honourees will be named at the Federation of Agriculture Harvest Dinner in November.
The Agriculture Wall of Fame was put forth in order to honour those who have made significant contributions to agriculture in the County. Perth County residents, both living and deceased, are eligible.
