A chance meeting at a costume sale gave heritage items a new home
This past summer, Pivot's executive chair, Margaret Shearman, was attending a costume sale when she ran into Lillian Fehr from the Clinton Museum. The museum, located one and a half hours northwest of Kamloops, is part of the South Cariboo Historical Museum Society, whose mission "is to help keep Clinton area history alive through acquisition, preservation, and display of artifacts, archival materials, and memorabilia from our past for the enjoyment and education of citizens and visitors now, and in the future."
Their discussion led to Pivot donating a large number of costumes, hats, and patterns to the museum on October 11th, and the costumes were displayed as part of the museum's fashion show on October 22nd.
