Artefact collection on view for Doors Open Ottawa ‘14 John Curry

News - The extensive artefact collection at the Goulbourn Museum at Stanley’s Corners is usually off-limits to the public but this coming weekend is an exception. That’s because its Doors Open Ottawa weekend and the Goulbourn Museum is participating. The Museum itself and its exhibits will be open to the public, as is the case on every weekend, but for Doors Open Ottawa 2014 this Saturday and Sunday, June 7 and 8, the Museum is opening up its artefact collection storage area for visits by the public. This collection is not normally accessible by the public. And what a collection!

bread box, a wooden wheel, a picture of James Stitt, nephew of Jackson Stitt after whom Stittsville is named, pulleys, bells, old tyme agricultural implements, old South Carleton High School memorabilia, old trophies, a typewriter, an old TV set, signs from the former Stittsville railway station with the name “Stittville” with no middle “s,” mallets, jugs, lanterns, a giant drum, depression glass and more. Older folks might remember some of these artefacts from their childhood while younger visitors might marvel at these items from a bygone era. There will be guided tours of the artefact collection, probably every half hour. Goulbourn Museum staff will be in heritage costume as they guide these tours. Museum staff will also be explaining about some of the tools and procedures which are used to properly care for a collection of such artefacts. But there will be more to see at the Museum than just the artefact collection. Re-enactors representing the 100th Regiment of Foot, the British regiment from which many of the original settlers of Richmond and Goulbourn came, will be on hand on both days, Saturday and Sunday, performing drills and talking about the Regiment. The Richmond Spinners and Weavers are to be on hand at the Goulbourn Museum for one of these Doors Open Ottawa days. See MUSEUM, page 2

News - You will not only probably pick up a treasure or two from the wide array of items that will be on sale at a garage sale this Saturday, June 7 but you will also be helping ensure the acquisition of diagnostic and imaging equipment for detection and monitoring of cancers at the Queensway Carleton Hospital. So, it’s a win/win situation, no doubt about it. It’s a garage sale that is happening this Saturday, June 7, rain or shine, at Lisa Westphal’s home at 17 Baywood Drive in Stittsville which is right across the street from the parking lot at Guardian Angels Catholic School. She has been gathering up items for the garage sale not only from her own household but also from family friends and co-workers. That’s why there is going to be a host of items on sale at this garage sale – snowboards, skateboards, roller blades, a full size basketball net, an air hockey table, home décor items, linens, kitchenware, small appliances, bar stools, patio furniture, children’s toys, an office chair – you name it and it just might be there. All of the proceeds from this garage sale in Stittsville will go to one goal. See GARAGE SALE, page 3 On the corner of Eagleson and Hazeldean
