Thank you Bev for expressing what so many of us are feeling and thinking today.

I just wanted to add that there is another important museum - the Lytton Chinese History Museum<https://lyttonchinesehistorymuseum.com/>, which has a valuable collection of Chinese Canadian History (1870s to 1940s)-see link below
I saw the aerial yesterday and i could see nothing left of it.
I contacted the manager by email and text - hopefully they can tell us how we can help. I'm sure everyone is still in a state of shock there but i'm sure there are ways we can help.

Hi Everyone,

I cannot express my sadness enough at the fire that devastated Lytton yesterday. I am so grateful that residents were able to flee and get to safety with just a few minutes warning. I know you can rebuild and become a lovely little village again. I mourn with you at the loss of homes, your hospital, school, restaurant and many other businesses and structures.

As your important and enjoyable museum was in the centre of town, I fear it was destroyed also.  If we, in the museum community, can assist you in any way to start all over again to tell your history and showcase your heritage, please let us know. Reach out through the BC Museums Association or to others in the field and we will help.

As they say, “stay strong Lytton” tears are falling all over the province of BC and Canada.

Best Wishes,

Bev Kennedy
