The Thunder Bay Museum is holding an exhibit to highlight the Port Arthur Rotary’s 100th anniversary.

The exhibition displays photos and artifacts, showing the people, projects, and accomplishments of Port Arthur Rotarians.

The Rotary and museum collected artifacts such as an axe that was used to build the 1918 ‘Outlaw Bridge’ across the Pigeon River linking Minnesota and Ontario and photos of memorable moments like the planting of trees in 1925 on Memorial Ave in recognition of World War One veterans.

A digital slide kiosk, loaned by Lakehead University, is displaying over 70 large photos that document the Rotary’s 100 years of service with a focus on youth leadership, international projects such as the building of a medical clinic in the Peruvian Amazon as well as innumerable service and fellowship activities.

The Port Arthur Rotary’s official 100th birthday is on April 8.
