On your marks… get set… get going to the Chatham-Kent Museum for their brand-new exhibit.
Get to know Chatham-Kent’s greatest athletes at CK. Faster. Higher. Stronger, featuring artifacts and memorabilia loaned from more than a dozen Chatham-Kent Olympians.
Open from September 2, 2017 until September 2, 2018, this exhibit will have people running faster, reaching higher, and chasing C-K’s Olympic dreams from Thamesville’s Louis Harding who won gold in hockey in 1924 all the way to Chatham’s Miranda Ayim, who represented Canada on the women’s basketball team in 2016.
Find out what athletes wore, where they stayed, what they brought back (including medals!), and where they are today, and get your picture taken on the CK Champions podium with our very own Chatham-Kent Museum medals.
“Thanks to the Chatham-Kent Sports Hall of Fame, the Chatham Skating Club, the Wallaceburg and District Museum, and all of the Chatham-Kent athletes and their families for their support of this exhibit,” Museum officials stated in a press release.
The Chatham-Kent Museum is located at 75 William Street North and is open daily from 1 p.m. 5 p.m., admission by donation.
