Summer Breeze-Kent led one week of multicultural arts and crafts programs for ages 5 to 10 during the March Spring Break. These annual programs continue to be very popular with young Kitimat and Terrace students and a good volunteer opportunity for local high school students. Summer also presented "Big Skies" - two very successful and well attended art workshops in April in the Museum's Upstairs Gallery.
The Museum in the Classroom art workshops in local elementary schools were well funded by community and corporate sponsors. Kitimat showed up for the Museum's opening of "Aliens Among Us" - a travelling exhibition from the Royal BC Museum on invasive flora and fauna.
The Kitimat Museum & Archives was honoured at the Kitimat Chamber of Commerce 2012 Business Excellence Awards, March 31, as the Hospitality/Tourism Business of the Year for Kitimat. First award for us! Very exciting!
