From the Orangeville Banner:
The Dufferin County Museum & Archives’ (DCMA) annual Corn Flower Festival is returning for its 14th year.
The exhibit, held June 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., will focus on showing the museum’s “stuff.”
More than 600 pieces of glass will be displayed during the event, including the museum’s coloured blanks collection dating back to 1920.
From the Orangeville Citizen:
How does Dufferin celebrate its heritage? Traditionally, by involving the entire community and by celebrating all year long! The staff of the Dufferin County Museum and Archives are looking forward to 2009. Why? Because they are planning events and programs for the whole community for the whole year to celebrate their 15th anniversary at the site on Airport Road in Mulmur Township.
To start, the entire facility will have new exhibits for 2009. First, opening in February, Corn Flower:, “Decades of Design” will feature the DCMA’s nationally known W. J. Hughes Corn Flower collection showcased with fashion items dating from the early 1920s to the 1980s. The exhibit features everything from sleek geometric deco to the free form styles of the swinging 1960s.
