Arthur Child Heritage Museum, Gananoque, Ontario

They have a lot of things going on this summer at the Arthur Child Heritage Museum, in Gananoque, Ontario, right next to St. Lawrence River. 

On Canada Day, the museum will start serving cake at noon on July 1, and they will continue as long as cake is available.

On July 3, 17 and 31 the featured treat at the museum will be an old-fashioned lemonade stand with fresh made lemonade at one dollar per glass.

The museum will offer heritage teas on July 10 and 24 from 2 to 3 p.m., and they hope to offer alternating tea and lemonade events in August.

They are redesigning the website and it will be called Our Story Preserved. The website will hopefully be available soon.
