Fall Lecture Series - Facing the Flames: The History of Firefighting in Grey County
Sim Salata presents a complementing talk to the Grey Roots original exhibit, Facing the Flames: The History of Fire Fighting in Grey County. Discover stories of local fire and rescue from the first brave bucket brigades to our current highly-trained professionals. Enjoy viewing historical and contemporary photographs from museum and archival sources throughout the presentation.
Sim Salata has been Collections Manager at Grey Roots Museum & Archives since 2008. Prior to coming to Grey Roots she was the Director/Curator at the Orillia Museum of Art and History, and the Curator of Penetanguishene Centennial Museum. In her present role, she preserves, conserves, secures and insures over 15,000 artefacts which tell the stories of the people of Grey County. She works closely with the Engagement and Education Department to ensure that the County’s artefacts are era-appropriate to each building in Moreston Heritage Village, and are the best examples to support the focus of each exhibit mounted at Grey Roots.
This presentation is part of our Fall Lecture Series taking place on Tuesday afternoons in November in our Theatre. Talks take place at 1:00 p.m. and are repeated at 2:30 p.m. Complimentary refreshments following each talk. Free with admission. Members free as always.
