New display

 100 years since World War 1

"The Hedley Boys"

Starting with the 17 men named on the cenotaph, researchers Jen Douglass and Andy English have followed  the proportionally huge contribution our small town made during the war. They are contiuing to add to this record as people contact them with more stories.

They will be telling the story at:

Penticton Library  in October and on November 11 at the Hedley Cenotaph, Seniors' Center, and Museum.





 
 Meetings are usually held monthly on the first Monday at 6:00 P.M. They welcome  members and interested persons.
 
Winter hours
Museums never stop! Our volunteers will take a well-earned rest and then begin their winter projects, expanding the Museum's database to include textual information files (the database is now largely centered on the photo collection), documenting new contributions to our collections, and doing more writing and special projects dear to our hearts and talents..
During the winter season, we will welcome visits from past residents or their families, small tour groups, researchers, or others with special interests. Please leave a phone message at 250-292-8787 or email hedleymuseum@nethop.net.
