We invite you to join us in celebrating the opening of the exhibit Hardship and Resilience: The History of Ukrainians in Kenora at the Lake of the Woods Museum.

Between 1891 and 1954 approximately 275,000 Ukrainians immigrated to Canada. This exhibit is the story of the hundreds of Ukrainians who found themselves in the Kenora area, making a new life in the middle of the Canadian Shield.

Light refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend.  Admission is free, donations are encouraged.
