We have been having inquiries about the Cut Knife Centennial and what is planned for the days of June 30th and July 1st.
The museum is working on a walking tour of the business area of town that tells of the businesses that occupied the lots for the past 100 years. You will be able to do that on your own as signage is posted for you to read as much or as little as you like.
There is a new photography display in the Museum’s Carruthers Church with lots of old photos of Cut Knife over the past 100 years as well as a group of present day photos taken by Courtney Waldner of CKHS. Intermixed will be some of our heritage quilts that we have in our collections. Bring your stories of memories of Cut Knife as we want you to share!!
In the Exhibits building we will be having slideshow of the Faces of Cut Knife at the top of the hour (i.e. 9:00 am, 10:00 am, etc), every hour that the museum is open. Our archives has many photos of the residents of Cut Knife and area from over the years. Come and see faces of those who have been in the area.
The museum buildings will be open both days from 9 am to 5 pm for you to browse through and recall or learn the stories of our Cut Knife heritage.
There will be a Silent Auction at the museum with 5 copies of the first edition of Where the Cut Knife Waters Flow. This book is out of print and very hard to find. Help us to raise money for the museum and archives by bidding on them. If you have any item that you would like to donate to the museum to add to the silent auction, please phone 306-398-2345 and we will get back to you asap.
We will have a table at the Culture Fair on Saturday with some information on our Archives and some of our recent publications for sale. Hope to see you there.
