Kronau Heritage Museum reported an increase in program revenue, ideas for future fundraising events, and updates on facility upgrades at its Feb. 26 annual general meeting, which was held online.

“In 2021 the museum attempted again to have as normal a year as possible, adjusting our activities and events to keep in line with changing COVID protocols and keeping our committee, summer students and visitors as safe as possible,” board chair Audrey Euteneier said during the meeting.

The museum also saw several major renovations last year. A wheelchair-accessible washroom was installed. Plumbing was connected to the kitchen and a metal flagpole was erected in front of the Saar School house. A lending library was built outside of the church and, thanks to funding from the RM of Lajord and in-kind donations, a shrub bed and dry stream bed was constructed behind the museum lots in order to redirect eavestrough water away from the buildings.
