The From Vimy to Juno exhibit started off the new year making stops in Saskatchewan, British Columbia, and Alberta. Thank-you to all our hosts, they have each done a wonderful job of making the From Vimy to Juno accessible allowing people to learn more about Canada’s role during the First and Second World Wars.
Rossland Museum & Discovery Centre (British Columbia)
Rossland Museum & Discovery Centre received the exhibit just in time for the holidays hosting a very successful opening on December 20th, 2017. Make sure to read this Rossland News article.
To compliment the stories told by the From Vimy to Juno display. Rossland Museum put together local and regional stories to connect the exhibition to the stories from Rossland itself. 2017 also marked the 120th anniversary of the incorporation of the City of Rossland. From 1914 to 1945, Rossland and region experienced significant changes of its own - with the shift from employment in mining to working at the smelter and the development of skiing on Red Mountain. Together the stories told in the From Vimy to Juno exhibit and the additional stories provided by Rossland explore the impacts that local people made on the battlefront and the homefront, and also the ways that Rossland and the region changed over these significant decades.
