Beaulne Mu­seum ben­e­fits from fund­ing

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

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.
