High School Drama at Fenelon Museum (Nov. 2017)

October 25, 2017


Maryboro Lodge is proud to present Fenelon Falls: A Walk Through Time a play written and directed by the Fenelon Falls Secondary School senior Drama class on November 6th, Monday at 12 noon.


The show, Fenelon Falls: A Walk Through Time, showcases the rich and interesting history of Fenelon Falls, and the invigorating characters which once lived there. The play will incorporate the majority of the rooms in the Maryboro Lodge museum, in order to truly bring the history to life.


Fenelon Falls and its surrounding area have plenty of history to share, and the Fenelon Falls Secondary School’s senior Drama class will be showcasing it with this walk through performance. Guests will be escorted through the museum and will see a variety of characters and scenes specific to our local history.


The senior Drama class has developed the show in collaboration with the museum’s staff and local historians.  Students have been learning about our local history through regular museum visits, and research in the community. This play will appeal to all ages and everyone is welcome to attend. There is no admission fee, however a donation to the museum is appreciated.


The museum will be open November 6th from 12 to 2 p.m.for play and all are welcomed.


Maryboro Lodge Fall Events (Sept. 2017)

August 29, 2017
Have you been to the museum lately? There is life in all that history! This summer was an active one for the team at Maryboro Lodge. Check out their facebook feed to review some of the awesome events that were held on the lawn outside the museum, in full view of beautiful Cameron Lake. Highlights include the afternoon teas, Fenelon Live open mics, and just last weekend a visit from Laurie Scott MPP.
We have a Monarch Butterfly Release this Sunday September 3 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm.  You can purchase a “tagged” Monarch or “Painted Lady”.  The Monarchs are $25 and the Painted Ladies are $20.  The Painted Ladies will stay close to the gardens of the museum and will lay their eggs for more  butterflies next year.  The Monarchs will start their journey south with the hopes of making it to Mexico; and then return to Texas to lay their eggs. Because they are tagged, people can get updates on their journeys through email from different stations.
Pre-register at Museum or on the day of September 3rd.
Doors Open are happening in Kawartha Lakes, and the museum is part of the tour September 9th and 10th.
Harvest Happenings on Thanksgiving weekend will be at the Museum this year.  We will be making “Scarecrows” and “Pumpkins”  Lots of Apple cider and good food available
A huge thanks to the residents and visitors, our student employees and Board and Partners of Fenelon Falls for the huge success this summer at the Fenelon Museum.  We are grateful to the Town Crier for all their help in advertising and letting
people know what is at the end of “Oak Street”.  We look forward to next year and an amazing summer.
(Us too!)
