Over the winter of 1882 to 1883, Swift Current had two residents: a shopkeeper and a CPR employee. One hundred years later, we're hovering at around 16 000 people. From homesteaders to entrepreneurs to professionals, people from all over the world have come to make their home and raise their families in Swift Current.
On September 9th, the Swift Current Museum will open a new exhibition, Newcomers Then & Now: A History of Immigration in Swift Current.
The Swift Current Museum would like to hear your family's story. Why did you, your family, or your ancestors decide to build a life in this small prairie city? What was your experience immigrating to Canada? How do you keep the culture and traditions of your home country alive in Swift Current?
Please call or drop by the Museum to share your story. Call Rachel at 778-4815 to participate.
