Wedding stories wanted at White Rock Museum

WHITE ROCK — Calling all married couples: Are you a former or current resident of White Rock? If so, your stories are wanted by staff at White Rock Museum & Archives for the facility’s next exhibit, "I Do! The Wedding Stories of White Rock."

"We are looking for community members who currently (call), or once called, White Rock home and want to share the moments of their special day with us," the museum said in a press statement. "Whether you got hitched four weeks or 40 years ago, your story matters!"

If you’ve ever wondered when you’d pull out that wedding dress again, this is it.

"We’d love to put it and your love story on display," stated staff. "We are looking for 10 couples and scheduling interviews for the first two weeks of June."

If you are interested in being a part of this exhibit, contact Amanda Sittrop, the musuem’s collections, exhibits and programming co-ordinator, via email at whiterockcollections@telus.net.

Participation in the exhibit will be based on a first come, first serve basis.

In celebration of this exhibit, the museum will hosts its annual Tea Party and Fashion show at White Rock Community Centre on June 28. This year’s event will feature a century of wedding fashion, with catering by Spiritual Ingredients Bakery. For more information, or to purchase a ticket, call 604-541-2221.

The museum’s current exhibit, "Play On! Water Sports & Recreation of Times Gone By," is on display until Sept. 1.
