Back by popular demand, the Annual Strawberry Social will be held on Sunday, June 28th at the North Lanark Regional Museum, from 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm. Featuring live music courtesy of the Perth Citizens’ Band, it’s an event you don’t want to miss!

The Social is one of the largest fundraising events the Museum hosts, drawing visitors from all around Mississippi Mills and surrounding townships to enjoy an afternoon of shortcake made with fresh, locally grown strawberries.  Tickets for the event can be purchased in advance for $10 at the Museum and at Baker Bob’s in Almonte, or for $12 at the door. All funds raised will go towards the Museum Accessibility Project, future exhibitions, and overall  visitor experience.

The Museum collections will be open to all Strawberry Social attendees and the general public. Make sure to stop by and see the final weekend of the Brydges Carvings exhibition. Featuring more than 60 carvings by Cecil and Shirley Brydges and a carved replica of the 50 Horse Hitch by the Lanark Woodworking Club, the exhibit showcases the Brydges’ skill, humour and passion for woodwork. From delicate maple teacups to animated toys, there is truly something for everyone to enjoy!

Hope to see you there!
