Your pennies will help Cumberland Museum
For the week leading up to and including Cumberland's Market Day this Saturday, the Cumberland Museum will accept pennies from the community as a fundraiser for museum programs, exhibits and events.
Canadian pennies will soon will become a piece of history so this may be one of the last penny drives ever! Soon the life of the Canadian penny will be a story told to our grand kids when they find a penny buried in the garden or under the floorboards of our house and ask, "Grandma, what is this brown thing?"
Museum volunteers have their sleeves rolled up and they're ready to start rolling the copper. Dig through your drawers, clean out the jars root under the couch cushions. You've got pennies to give for history!
The Cumberland Museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. till 5 p.m.
