Grey Roots to celebrate 20th Anniversary with PA Day event

Grey Roots Museum & Archives

2024 is the 20th Anniversary of Grey Roots Museum & Archives. To mark the occasion, Grey Roots is holding a 20th Anniversary Celebration on Friday, June 28 from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm. The event is open to the public and free to attend. Taking place on a PA Day Friday, the celebration features activities and programming designed for children, along with complimentary ice cream cones, making it an ideal start to the summer holidays. Attendees can tour current exhibits as well as the grounds of Moreston Heritage Village.

“This is a major milestone for Grey Roots, and we cannot wait to celebrate on Friday,” says Zak Erb, Public Relations Coordinator for Grey Roots. “Over the last 20 years, Grey Roots has impacted so many, from visitors to Kids Camp attendees, our incredible family of volunteers, and the community organizations we’ve had the pleasure of working with. There’s so much to be proud of, and so much to look forward to.”

The Anniversary Celebration on June 28 is one of several activities planned around the 20th Anniversary. Other activities include several “admission by donation” days, the next of which is Delton Becker Day on Saturday, June 29. Grey Roots will hold a 20th Anniversary Gala on Friday November 8, and a retrospective presentation on the origin and early years of Grey Roots, presented as part of the Fall Lecture Series in November.

Grey Roots Museum & Archives shares the unique stories of Grey County through programming, special events, and original and traveling exhibitions. For more information, visit the website.


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a donation in lieu of a subscription fee and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
