Touch a Truck 2019

On May 26th we held our 6th annual Touch a Truck fundraiser. The museum welcomed almost 1,200 visitors and over 20 trucks, and raised more than $6,000. The parking lot was filled to the brim with smiling faces, trucks in every shape and size, and community spirit.

Each year the funds raised by the Touch a Truck event go to support our current initiatives including the museum’s award-winning education programs, sharing the stories of this unique collection, and caring for the collection. 

Thank you to all for taking time on that sunny Sunday in May to support The Canadian Canoe Museum!

And, don’t forget to save Sunday, May 31, 2020, for our 7th annual Touch a Truck fundraiser. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
