The Peace River library hosted an Alberta Culture Days event on Sept. 28 that included a bilingual storytime, a taco and bannock community meal, and a cultural talent show by members of the Scottish Dance Society and Muzyka Dancers. There was also a hip hop dance workshop later in the afternoon.

Meanwhile, the Peace River Museum held their third annual Doors Open event to let people explore some of the town’s unique heritage buildings at no charge. Buildings included in Doors Open included the historic NAR station, Third Mission Inn & Suites, Peace River Brewing, the Masonic Lodge, Athabasca Hall, St. Paul’s United Church, St. James Cathedral, the library, and the museum itself. The Old Anglican Rectory house built in 1916 was also open to visitors.

A Friday indigenous “lunch and learn” planned by the museum in cooperation with the Sagitawa Friendship Centre was cancelled due to low registration.
