Comox Museum discussing history

The Comox Archives and Museum presents Let’s Talk History, a tea and conversation event on Thursday, July 25.

CAMS has been working on telling the story of the evolution of Comox for some time. It’s now placing material on maps so you can see the evolution in layers.

CAMS will show some of this mapping and will ask you to come and bring your best memory and help us develop more of the “who came first, who came next, what did they do” components.

“Our history is very interesting and we want to share the stories with each other from those whose forefathers came here as settlers to those who just arrived. As we put this project together we are weaving the fabric of the area and we are showing how a piece of land becomes a town.”

Come July 25 between 1 and 4 p.m. so you can add to the project and we will have a shoe box of photos that are unidentified. This is all very exciting — and if you didn’t get enough we will do this again Aug. 23 at the same time and location.
