2021 Summer Plans

Given the current state of the COVID-19 Pandemic’s impact on cultural sites, it is hard to say what will be happening this summer. We are moving forward with plans to open on Victoria Day weekend as usual, and host some exciting events with social distancing and precautions in place. 

That being said, we can’t say where we will be one month from now after the current Stay-At-Home order ends, so all plans are subject to change.

Courtney returned back to Ontario in 2012, and then back to Muskoka in 2016 after leaving her first career path, looking for something more community minded. Courtney received a Post Graduate Certificate in Museum and Gallery Studies from Georgian College in 2018, and has worked in Muskoka to promote cultural activities since.
