Museum to be named for Seiling
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.
