The Western Development Museum - North Battleford is the recipient of a generous donation from the North Battleford Lions Club Inc., enabling the museum to purchase a new floor preparation machine, a vital piece of maintenance equipment.
Last year, more than 30,000 people visited the WDM North Battleford. This translates to significant foot traffic on the museum floors. The process that took nearly a full day to complete for one room, will now take a third of that time. This machine strips and vacuums the floor in one pass, all while being completely chemical-free.
“The North Battleford Lions Club Inc. have been supporters of the museum for many years and this most recent donation will help us enhance the visitor experience at our facility,” said Joyce Smith, manager. “We are fortunate to have such a supportive, community-minded organization in our area. We can’t thank their members enough!”
“Our Lions Club is proud to have partnered with the WDM North Battleford in several different ways over the years, from pancake breakfasts, to bingos and more recently, with funnel cake making. We wanted our local museum to shine and our club knew we could help with this very practical purchase,” added Lion Pat Folan.
