Looking back over the year, it is hard to believe everything that the Community Waterfront Heritage Centre has accomplished in 2015, and we owe it all to the hard work and dedication of its volunteers, members, summer students, and community supporters. From the acquisition of the 1953 Dining Car, to substantial fundraising campaigns and special events; such as the Waterfront Festival and the Christmas Train, outreach programs, and development of the museum site, its exhibits and collection, it has been an amazingly successful (and busy!) year. Staff and volunteers look forward to the new year and are planning lots of exciting events and activities in 2016!
THANK YOU for your ongoing interest in and support of the Community Waterfront Heritage Centre!
MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR from everyone at Community Waterfront Heritage Centre!

Thank you to everyone who volunteered in 2014 to make the Community Waterfront Heritage Centre’s first year a success. It was a dedicated group of volunteers who saved the Marine and Rail Museum. Volunteers welcomed visitors from around the world.
Members, if you are interested in volunteering in 2015 and haven’t been contacted by our Volunteer Coordinator, check the Volunteer Page for more information.
