Gridiron Glory: A Look Back at Chokio-Alberta Football

Exhibit: November 5, 2019-February 28, 2020

This exhibit reflects on the history of football in Alberta and Chokio and the journey of being rivals and eventually teammates.  Tragedy and triumph, dedication and sweat, are all evident in the history of the popular school sport that brought these communities together.  We are grateful for items loaned from the Chokio-Alberta School and Coach Neal Hofland.

Men and Women of the Land, Hall of Honor

20150908_095321

This is a video exhibit about people that were nominated by their friends and families. We have about 50 nominees so far, and most of these videos are completed and available to view in our museum.  The videos are about 12-15 minutes each and they are a short biography of each person. You do not need to know the person specifically to enjoy the videos!
