For my final blog post, I wanted to reflect on my time here at the museum and say thank you. I’ve had a great time this summer! I am incredibly grateful that I had the opportunity to spend my summer learning and working with such a passionate group of people.
During my time at the Sunshine Coast Museum & Archives, I have learned an incredible amount about the history of the Sunshine Coast, but also about technical aspects of a museum. It’s fascinating to learn more about the community you were raised in, and this has been an amazing experience. I was also able to gain experience working with photo negatives, collections care/documentation, writing blog posts and a newspaper article!
A special thank you to Matthew, Marci, and Gary for being so welcoming. I had a wonderful time getting to know all of you, and I couldn’t have asked for a better team to be a part of. To everyone else that I worked with, it was a pleasure to meet you and I hope to see you around soon! And a final thank you to everyone who visited the museum this summer, we wouldn't be here without your support.
I’ll definitely be back, and I look forward to seeing everyone again!
