Meet Shannon Kelly, Recreation and Culture Coordinator at the Township of Scugog. Shannon and Art Waves host Marion Meyers discuss the Scugog Shores Museum and its mission to the community, unique history, fun events, and youth recreation camps.

Discover where the museum gets its historical items and how they determine what makes it in their collection. Shannon touches on the museum’s relationship with the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nations and how they have worked together to engage and teach local youth about the rich history of the Indigenous people whose land the museum resides on.

Shannon describes the museum’s flag ship event, Canoe the Nonquon; which not only raises money for the museum but is the longest-running race in Ontario with this being the 52nd year. The event always takes place on the first Saturday of June. Save the date: June 4th, 2022!

Shannon also mentions other important partnerships within the community with local artists and arts organizations like Theatre on the Ridge. Stay tuned for Episode Two with Theatre on the Ridge Artistic Director, Carey Nicholson, for more on the upcoming collaboration.
