The White Rock Museum is opening its feature exhibition this summer, Mosaics: Understanding White Rock in the Context of Canada. The exhibition runs until October 9, 2017 and is funded by the Government of Canada and the City of White Rock.

The exhibition explores the development of White Rock as a Canadian city, but emphasizes little known local stories about several communities present in White Rock over the last 150 years. These stories include the large the Japanese community living near East Beach until 1941, the development of the Semiahmoo reservation, Great Northern Railway as a major silk distributor from Asia, and the challenge facing Chinese Canadians living in the area until the late 1940s. The exhibition features the Campbell River Lumber Company, as one of White Rock’s largest industrial outfits, and the important role it played in bringing a culturally diverse workforce to the Peninsula in the 1920s.

The exhibition draws on new photos from the Japanese (Nikkei National Museum) and South Asian (Centre for Indo-Canadian Studies) community, a host of archival photos from the museum’s collection, and images from the Surrey Museum and the Great Northern Railway Historical Society collections also.

This summer’s show also features an interactive “speaker’s corner” where visitors will have the opportunity to create photo or video to share their experience at the museum with the larger community via social media. This initiative is made possible by the City of White Rock, the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between the Peninsula Community Foundation, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.

Kate Petrusa, Curator says “We are glad to be a part of the City of White Rock’s Canada 150 festivities. We’ve been meeting as a committee for this summer for a year now, so it’s satisfying to see it come together. As a museum, I’m eager to fulfill our responsibility in telling a range of stories about Canada, not always the celebratory ones, and make sure that we have a fuller picture of Canada’s legacy as a country.”

The White Rock Museum is located at 14970 Marine Drive in White Rock, BC. The Museum is open to the public Monday through Friday, 10:30 am – 4:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday 11:00am – 4:30pm. Admission is by donation. For more information, call 604-541-2230.

Most people know there is AIDS in Africa but few people are aware of the extent of the devastation from the AIDS pandemic.  30 million people have died and 13 million children are orphaned.  Many of these children are in the care of their grandmothers who bury their own beloved children and begin parenting again with few resources.

Canadian grandmothers have united to bring awareness to the situation for African grandmothers and, through the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, have raised $24 million in 11 years.  On Grandparents Day, Sunday September 10, five grandmother groups from across the Lower Mainland will host Solidarity Cycle in support of African grandmothers.

The starting line and light breakfast is sponsored by Whitecliff Retirement Residence, 15501 16 Ave, Surrey.  All riders who would like to fundraise in support of African grandmothers and the children in their care are welcome to join the ride. 

The route travels 100 km through the Fraser Valley from White Rock to Yarrow and is supported by Grandmother groups along the way.  Riders may choose to ride as a team of two doing 50 km each.
