Scope and Content
Fonds consists of textual records, photographs, and other material relating to Don Wrigley's role as board member and later president of the Lower Mainland Association of Friends of the Vancouver Carousel [Friends of the Carousel] and the Burnaby Village Museum Association. Fonds has been arranged into the following two series: 1) Lower Mainland Associaton of the Friends of the Carousel; 2) Burnaby Village Museum Association.
Administrative History
Donald (Don) Wrigley was Chairman and Chief Fundraiser of the Lower Mainland Association of the Friends of the Vancouver Carousel from 1990 to 1993 (when the restored carousel was officially opened at the Burnaby Village Museum). Wrigley has remained active in the "Friends of the Carousel" since that time, serving as President for the majority of the group’s history since 1993 (as of January 2015). Wrigley was President of the Century Park Museum Association (later known as the Burnaby Village Museum Association, the governing society of the Burnaby Heritage Village – now Burnaby Village Museum) when the Lower Mainland Friends of the Vancouver Carousel approached the group in May 1989 to see if they could provide a home for the carousel. At their board meeting on May 27, 1989, the CPMA agreed to give space to the carousel, pending the approval of Burnaby Municipal Council. Wrigley was asked to join the board of the Lower Mainland Association of Friends of the Vancouver Carousel as a liaison. At that time, Wrigley recalls the board of the group was its entire membership – Venus Solano, Doug McCallum, Wayne MacKay, Hazel Martin and Elio Luongo. They acquired two horses from the carousel, Julius and Belle, for use in fundraising over the summer of 1990, at which time the carousel was operating again at the PNE. Julius was restored by William Dentzel III (a descendant of one of North America’s original carousel manufacturers), and Belle was partially stripped and repaired so they could serve as “before and after” examples. The second AGM of the LMFOC was held in June 1990. Don Wrigley became president, VP was Monica Woldring, Secretary Hazel Martin, Treasurer Ross Stringer, and Directors Venus Solano, Wayne MacKay, Doug McCallum and Michele Reid. They had $10,850 in cash donations and pledges of $20,000, plus offers of in-kind donations of $11,500. They decided to ask for pledges, as they were not yet certain if they could make it happen. They had four months. Don Wrigley took on the task of Chairman of Fundraising. Harry Sumner joined the board in August as Volunteer Coordinator, and later Vice President. Good news came in September 1990 when a GO BC award of $200,000 was received from the provincial government.

Scope and Content
This film is created was Cindy Gierarch. The film shares happy memories of canoeing with her husband, Lester, on beautiful glacier fed Moraine Lake in the Canadian Rockies. This trip, in 2007, was a long dreamt of reward for paying off the mortgage on their Burnaby condo suite. While canoeing on the lake, Cindy learned a valuable lesson that she would never forget - “life will glide along smoothly and joyfully as long as I keep my paddle on the bottom of our canoe.”
