Sherbrooke Record - - LOCAL SPORTS -

The Colby-cur­tis Mu­seum (SHS) re­cently launched the third edi­tion of its Adopt an Arte­fact fundrais­ing pro­gram.

Last year, $23,000 was raised through this spe­cial ex­hi­bi­tion, which of­fers res­i­dents, schools, busi­nesses and or­ga­ni­za­tions in the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC and beyond the op­por­tu­nity to adopt an arte­fact from the mu­seum col­lec­tion for one year. By adopt­ing an arte­fact, sup­port­ers will be con­tribut­ing in a mean­ing­ful way to the preser­va­tion and pro­mo­tion of the rich cul­tural her­itage of the re­gion.

New Arte­facts, new theme!

The Colby-cur­tis team also an­nounced that they have added twenty arte­facts to last year’s edi­tion, all re­lated to one theme: A night at the Opera.

The public is in­vited to con­sult the cat­a­logue of arte­facts to adopt on the mu­seum’s web­site or at the front desk in the mu­seum. All adopters will re­ceive a tax re­ceipt, a cer­tifi­cate of adop­tion and other ben­e­fits.

Any­one in­ter­ested in adopt­ing an arte­fact is en­cour­aged to con­tact Ali­son Han­nan, Ex­ec­u­tive As­sis­tant, by tele­phone at 819-876-7322 or by email at info@col­by­cur­tis.ca.

The Adopt an Arte­fact pro­gram will last un­til Au­gust 31, 2021.
