Winter Speaker Series

Learn something new! During the winter months, the Friends of the Museum organize and host a speaker series in the CPR Station building. Speaker topics are usually related to Alberta heritage and or local history. These casual lectures are well attended and provide a great social break through the bleak winter months.
