“It’s a small gesture to thank the community for 21 years of caring, support, and generosity,” said Jim Karl, CMoW Executive Director. “We hope to continue to be a key asset in our community for another 21 years to come.”

Last year, CMoW welcomed more than 600 guests in a single day which was the record number of patrons at the Museum.

“Community Day will be a fun-filled event this year,” said Heather Bowman, CMoW Development Coordinator. “We are so grateful for all of the Museum guests that have supported us over the years and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to show our appreciation. We are incredibly thankful to all of the community businesses and organizations that are participating in this event.”
