Together We Are Stronger: Relocation of CPR Engine Bell

Funding Received: $15,000

The Chase Museum worked together with local First Nations to install a CPR engine bell on a cairn in front of the Museum – the artefact represents the strength to persevere and work together in the face of adversity and will stand as a monument to inclusion and cooperation. Three of the four sides of the cairn hold a plaque designed by each of the local First Nations Bands. Raising the Secwepemc Nations flag with the Canadian and BC flag indicates our Country’s movement towards reconciliation.
