Mindemoya Historical Society gifts $500 to the Manitoulin Health Centre, Mindemoya, Manitoulin Island

Mindemoya, ON  - On June 22, 2021 the Manitoulin Health Centre (MHC) received a donation of $500 from the Mindemoya Historical Society. These funds are earmarked to expand the emergency department facilities at MHC’s Mindemoya location.  


“Let's Emerg Together,” is the Campaign Slogan chosen to champion the Capital Campaign - Mindemoya Site Emergency Department Renovation and Expansion Project. The Emergency Department at this site needs to be renovated and expanded, as it strives to meet its mission of, “contributing to the health and well-being of all who come to us in need.” The total funds necessary for these capital improvements are $5 Million with fundraising goal of $2.5 Million.


Mr. Ted Taylor, a member of the Central Manitoulin Historical Society explained the donation came from membership and visitors' fees. They were pleased to be able to contribute these to the Renovation and Expansion at MHC's Mindemoya Site.


Central Manitoulin Historical Society - Pioneer Museum, features a Welcome Centre with displays and visitors are encouraged to stroll through the museum grounds where the historical background of Central Manitoulin is displayed. There is a furnished log cabin home, a shop housing blacksmith tools, a barn and equipment, horse and cattle stable, logging tools, ice harvesting, milk processing, and butter making equipment.  Unfortunately the museum is closed for the 2021 season due to COVID-19.  They look forward to welcoming visitors and sharing the displays when the pandemic comes to an end.  


Angela Becks, Fundraising Chair, said “There was a time of remembering as we shared the names and memories of those original keepers of history”.  


MHC, the Board of Directors and the Fundraising Committee would like to express their sincere thanks to the Mindemoya Historical Society for their interest and investment in the health of our community.
