Volunteering and Donating


Museums like ours run on the care and support of the Board Members and locals that love history and want to help preserve it. We will always welcome those that wish to help us share the history of our local towns. If you would like to do so, there are a number of ways that you can help us out. Tipple Park Museum welcomes any amount of time you have to dedicate to your historical interest by providing volunteer opportunities for you.

Donating

Tipple Park is a fabulous collection of artifacts donated by the citizens living in this area. These pieces of history have memories attached to them that helped shape what Evansburg, Entwistle, Wildwood and neighbouring towns to what they are today. We are very proud of our collection and we are always looking for more. If you have something that has a story behind it, or you’re not even sure what it is, bring it by. Those material donations (collections or archival) are incredibly helpful to us. We accept all types of donations.

  • General Donations
  • Gifts in Memory
  • Gifts in Honour
  • Gifts-in-kind
  • Material Donation (archival and collections)
