Lesley Moore is the new manager of the Ladysmith Museum. She brings a passion for community heritage and the roles museums play. She believes museums bring together “people” and “places” by capturing stories and preserving artifacts, recognizing the diverse voices in their communities, bridging cultural traditions, sharing knowledge and sparking awareness through their collections, exhibitions and programs. “In our busy, fast-paced world museums offer continuity through time sharing the past in the present for the future,” says Moore.
The Ladysmith & District Historical Society Board and volunteers have given Lesley a warm welcome.
She looks forward to working with them and engaging with the local community and visitors this summer.
