NO. 6 RCAF Museum Dunnville

ACTIVITIES

Volunteers Make the Museum Work

Every Tuesday, a dedicated crew of volunteers gathers to maintain and enhance the Museum, service and maintain the planes and maintain the Airport grounds.  Here is a photo of Museum members painting the floor of the hangar.

A huge Yard Sale on our opening weekend raised significant funds, but it also meant many members were involved in setting up and running the sale.

We were one of the stops on the Rotary Man Cave event on May 14, 2016.   Several of our volunteers showed visitors how the Museum works.  Here Don Messner is ready to give visitors a tour of the Museum shop. 

It is not all work and no play.  The finale of the Annual Elimination Draw always features Museum members in a fun skit.  In 2016 12 Museum members dressed in costumes representing the months of the year.  The volunteers paraded onto our stage to the tune of Neil Sedaka's 1960 hit "Calendar Girl".

Come out and share your talents as well as enjoy good fellowship.


Monthly Membership Meetings

Members from the local area come out to the Museum at 10 a.m. on the second Saturday of every month for an update on Museum business, hear an interesting speaker, and socialize during lunch.  (In June the meeting is on the 3rd Saturday because of the Mudcat Festival)

Visitors are welcome to join us.
