SELKIRK—Back by popular demand, the Wilson MacDonald Memorial School Museum (WMMSM) is hosting the Shop Till You Drop! Christmas Craft Weekend on November 18, 19, and 20. This craft show is unique in that the vendors are not present; the sale is managed by the Friends of the Museum and student volunteers. Curator Dana Stavinga says, “Visitors can explore the museum, see the Heritage on Fire exhibit, and do some Christmas shopping.” She appreciates the volunteers who are vital to the museum saying, “They are helping preserve the history of rural education.” Pictured showing some of the handcrafted items that will be featured are Haldimand Fire Department Public Education Officer Ron Schwietzer (seated), WMMSM Curator Dana Stavinga (left), and Friends of the Museum member Karen Salvalaggio (right). WMMSM is located at 3513 Rainham Road, Selkirk.
