The new curator of the Doukhobor Discovery Centre will welcome the public at the museum’s season-opening celebration on April 24.

“We’re inviting everybody,” Netta Zeberoff said. “It’s going to be fun.”

The annual opening celebration typically offers some songs, some speeches and some food and drinks. Zeberoff said this year will be no exception.

“We’re going to have some local fruits and veggies and our Village Bistro will prepare some pastries,” she said.

While the centre doesn’t officially open for the season until May 1, Zeberoff said people will be welcome to take a tour at the April 24 ceremony.

She noted that some early-bird visitors have already started showing up at the museum, located at 112 Heritage Way.

“I haven’t been turning people way,” Zeberoff said.

This year marks the 40th year of the museum, she added.

The season-opening event is set to begin at 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 24 and last a couple of hours.
