Richmond County Historical Society president Norma Husk reports that the museum has just welcomed its very first visitor, a native of Drummondville, via the newly installed wheelchair ramp. It will be recalled that the ramp, as well as a new handicap-accessible bathroom, and other related modifications to Melbourne's historic former manse, were paid for through QAHN's "Local Built Heritage Restoration" project, which was itself funded by Quebec's Secrétariat aux relations avec les Québécois d'expression anglaise (SRQEA).
