Campbell’s is not just for soup

April 6, 2009

Huronia Museum has recently become a member of Campbell’s Labels for Education program.  This is a fantastic program offered to schools and other educational organizations to help acquire educational resources from sports equipment to musical instruments.  Each registered organization collects labels from eligible Campbell’s products, each one has an assigned points value and accrued points can then be redeemed for any items in their redemption catalogue.  This is a great program and will be very helpful in stocking our day camp with toys and sports equipment.

If you would like more information on this program or are interested in donating your labels to Huronia Museum but aren’t sure if yours are eleigible, please visit the Campbell’s Labels for Education web site.


Deserving Kids Camp Sponsorship Program

April 2, 2009

For many years Huronia Museum has run a Deserving Kids Sponsorship program.  Every spring we reach out in to the community to collect funds and sponsor children to come to our Summer Jam Day Camp.  These sponorships are then set aside for children who might not otherwise have the financial means or opportunity to attend camp.  Each week we dedicate a number of spots in our camp to the Deserving Kids program.  We then contact organizations like, The Children’s Aid Society, Kinark and Rosewood Shelter giving them the chance to place children in those spaces.

We are proud of this program and feel it is a very worthwhile cause.  We also see it as a great opportunity to put something back into the community that supports us.  If you would like to give to this program please fill out the Deserving Kids Sponsorship Form and return it to Huronia Museum.

Our First Post

February 27, 2009

This is our department’s first blog post.  It was suggested that we start sharing some of the exciting things that go on in our department in a bigger way on the world wide web.  We are currently in the middle of our Heritage Programs for Grade three students.  This program is all about our pioneers and building the community of North Simcoe.

Many thanks to our sponsors for this program again this year:  Ideal Rebekah Lodge 199. Midas Auto Service Experts, Tiny Township Lions Club, Royal Canadian Legion Branch 68, Port McNicoll Lions Club, Midland Lions Club, Midland Civitans, Ferguson Barristers and Royal Canadian Legion Branch 80 and the Ladies Auxilliary.  Thanks to them over 200 students will be visiting the museum over the new few weeks.
