The board reports that closure of the museum is imminent unless a new board (minumum 4 people) can be formed with people who are competent in matters of association funding and grants, tending to special needs individuals and running, promoting and maintaining a museum.
In the meantime, the existing executive and concerned members of the community have rallied and have some fund-raisers planned to keep the fuel tank full and the utilities paid over the winter while a new board has time to re-organize.
Who will step forward at the 11th hour to save the museum and the late Ron Johnson's vision for the people that the museum served?
The late Ron Johnson on YouTube:
Welcome to the Memory Lane Railway Museum in Middleton, Nova Scotia. We are pleased to bring you a virtual taste of what our extensive Dominion Atlantic Railway collection in our museum is all about.
From the exhibits in our museum to our support DAR DPI site at http://www.dardpi.ca, you won't find a more complete reference and experience of what the Dominion Atlantic Railway was, and the influence it still holds today for Nova Scotia.
Please, feel free to wander and experience the D.A.R. and bygone days of railroading through our site and museum. Plan a visit soon! We'll be ready and waiting to serve you up some home-town hospitality as you browse through our extensive collection in the museum.
