Beaulne Museum benefits from funding
The Beaulne Museum, of Coaticook, will be receiving a major grant in the amount of $381,998 from the Quebec government, as announced last week by the Minister of culture and communications, Luc Fortin. “We’re very happy with the announcement of this funding although it comes with some new rules,” said the Director and Curator of the Musée Beaulne, Francois Thierry Toe. “It is very encouraging and will help us improve our many public activities, conferences, workshops exhibitions, and to continue our mission of preserving the local heritage,” added Mr. Toe.
“The increase of funding for the Musee Beaulne, which is in my riding, will help to maintain this important institution in its role of economic engine, as a tourist attraction and source of dynamism for the community,” said the MNA of Saint-Francois, Guy Hardy.
The Colby-Curtis Museum, the Musee des beauxarts de Sherbrooke, and the Societe d’histoire de Sherbrooke, will also receive additional funding over a three year period.
