Statement from Mayor Heidi Lorenz regarding Muskoka Discovery Centre award

Mayor Heidi Lorenz issued the following statement today: 

On behalf of council and staff, I congratulate the Muskoka Discovery Centre on receiving an Outstanding Achievement in Exhibitions award from the Canadian Museums Association. 

The award is in recognition of the centre’s acclaimed Misko-Aki: Confluence of Cultures exhibit. The exhibit showcases the Indigenous presence in Muskoka. 

I visited the exhibit last July with council and senior staff and was truly impressed. The exhibit does a wonderful job at telling the story of our rich Indigenous history. The exhibit is moving, informative, and engaging. 

I want to thank Muskoka Discovery Centre representatives for all the good work they do promoting and celebrating Muskoka. The centre is certainly a valued part of Gravenhurst. 

Again, congratulations on receiving such a prestigious award and please accept my best wishes.
