North Highlands Museum Weekly Speaker Series Announced

North Highlands Museum Weekly Speaker Series Announced

The schedule of weekly presentation presented by the North Highlands Museum in Cape North, at the Top of the Island, has been announced.

Entitled “People, Places, Events In The North Highlands”, the Wednesday evening series presented in the museum’s North Highlands Cultural Centre offers topics dealing with a variety of topics.

Rob MacDonald, Co- Chairman of the North Highlands Museum Board, expressed satisfaction with the support shown by visitors and local residents during last year’s sessions. “We’re pleased and encouraged by the level of attendance last season”, he noted. “The strength and variety of our schedule says a lot for the rich history of the area, and the positive reception it has received in the past speaks volumes for the interest in the topics.” He continued: “ We see the museum not only as a repository of cultural and historical items, but also as a link between the human historical resources of the region and the general public. This series underscores this linking role and its importance.”

The weekly series runs Wednesday evenings until mid-September, beginning at 7:00 P.M. The Cultural Centre is adjacent to the North Highlands Museum in Cape North, at the northernmost tip of the Cabot Trail. Admission is $5.00, with students free.
