Barwick museum to open on May 6

Upcoming activities in Barwick include the museum opening on Friday, May 6, featuring those fabulous ’50s.
Emily Clink is hoping for the loan of clothing, artifacts, or what have you from the ’50s for a display that weekend.
As well, the Chapple Heritage Day sale in Barwick is slated for May 28. You can rent a table to sell new or used items for $10.
Your table may be set up in front of the museum or in front of your home in town, or by the hall if you live outside the village.
If you don’t care to have your own table, please consider donating to the museum’s table, any yard sale articles (large or small), to the bake table, penny table, or craft items.
Book your table or make your donation by May 21 by contacting Kathy Nugent (487-2329) or Emily Clink (487-2221).
There also will be a canteen at the hall that day.
