Trip to the Maple Ridge Museum

We had a lovely, sunny day last Thursday when we took a trip to the Maple Ridge Museum!  The tour with Val and Allison was very informative and interesting.  We learned about footwear, the Haney Brick and Tile Factory, some of Haney's pioneers, school and toys from years past, and we got see a real automated telephone exchange at work.  We were able to climb to the top of the caboose as well as see the model railway in the basement!

After the tour, we had a picnic lunch outside and then the students enjoyed the hill and the sunshine.  Hopefully all the grass stains came out, but if you have a look at these photos and videos, you'll agree it was worth the Spray and Wash.
