The Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre is one of Morden’s most significant tourism resources, as well as a centre for scientific activity. The Foundation is pleased to partner with the United Way and the Morden Thrift Shop to help the Centre upgrade their classroom facilities. As Foundation board member Ron Westfall said, “When the Fossil Discovery Centre approached us to fund a share of the cost of needed improvements to their classroom, we were happy to oblige. We like to see that our funds can be a part of a cooperative effort.”
Within the museum is a dedicated classroom which is used throughout the year in partnership with schools, by the fossil day camp, and on a day to day basis by their young visitors. The funds were used to purchase tables and twenty-four stacking chairs. This worthwhile project will benefit the children and youth of our community and beyond for years to come.
