Mu­seum to be named for Seil­ing

The Woolwich Observer - - NEWS -

Water­loo Re­gion Mu­seum will be re­named the Ken Seil­ing Water­loo Re­gion Mu­seum in honour of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s long­est-serv­ing chair of 33 years.

The an­nounce­ment and ded­i­ca­tion was made Sun­day night at a trib­ute event for the re­tir­ing chair. Re­gional coun­cil is ex­pected to make it of­fi­cial at its Novem­ber 14 meet­ing.

Com­mu­nity mem­bers that formed the Ken Seil­ing Recog­ni­tion Com­mit­tee unan­i­mously agreed that re­nam­ing the Water­loo Re­gion Mu­seum would be the most ap­pro­pri­ate form of recog­ni­tion given Seil­ing’s lo­cal her­itage in­ter­est and his sup­port of her­itage preser­va­tion ini­tia­tives, ac­cord­ing to a re­lease this week.
