The Neapolis Historical Association is hosting the 10th anniversary of The BudBarn Museum Saturday, May 20, 2017. There will be live entertainment, food and refreshments available 12 pm to 1 am.

In keeping with our past community donations to the Volunteer Fire Dept. and the Heli Pad Project we would like to combine this event in support of the Mountain View Food Bank. Anyone donating three canned food or non perishable items will receive Free Admission. For those willing to provide a pot luck dish Admission is also Free. General Admission is $5 per person, kids under 10 are Free, a portion of which will also go to the food bank.

That day we will also hold a memorial for two valuable members that have passed away this year. Mr. Brian Wescome “BudMan Calgary” an avid collector himself has left his entire Budweiser collection to The BudBarn Museum. This substantial collection is now on display in the newly renovated lobby. Also missed is Mr. Coby Christman of Cranbrook BC who will be honored for his volunteer efforts.
