The Canadian Transportation Museum & Heritage Village (CTMHV) hosted its second annual March Break program last week, which attracted many families and individuals who were seeking fun and interesting things to do over the week away from school.

  From March 13-15, the CTMHV was open to allow visitors a chance to make crafts, participate in a 30-minute detective game, and visit the EMS Ambulance Museum onsite. Free 45-minute Museum tours were also offered to youth, who were accompanied by a paying adult.

  Though the Heritage Village was still closed for the season during the March Break program dates, visitors were able to take a stroll through the area that houses 20 historic buildings.

  Lisa Wacheski, Curator & Manager of Education, was pleased with the turn out. The CTMHV attracted 39 youth and 27 adults over the three days the activities were offered.

  The CTMHV was pleased to have help from one of its younger volunteers, Jordyn, who assisted in running the activities.

  Volunteers are always needed at the CTMHV to help organize and run events such as the March Break program.

  Coming up, the CTMHV will host an indoor flea market over the March 23 and 24 weekend and a dinner and dance fundraiser with music entertainers Crystal Gage & Ryan St. Denis on April 27.
