Any Galt Babies out there?
Plans are to have another birthday party this year for the Galt Babies. Who are the Galt Babies? People born in our museum, back when it was a hospital.
We are very lucky in that we know of over 1000 people who love our building as much as we do!
Periodically we have a celebration for the Galt Babies. Basically this consists of free admission for the day, cake and coffee and tea, some entertainment, and tours of the building to explain how it was as a hospital. We are also very fortunate as the Galt Nurses, women who either trained in this building for their nursing career, or whom trained with the Galt School of Nursing, volunteer their time at these parties to welcome and congratulate the Babies!
Our last Galt Babies party was September 26, 2010 when we celebrated our building's 100th birthday. That being a strange time of the year, and Galt Babies living all over the world, we found a lot of people sent their regrets that it was not a good time for them to travel. With that in mind, we thought we'd try for a party on a long weekend in the summer - a time where the out-of-towners are more likely to be able to come here to be a part of the celebrations.
So with that in mind, we have a few months to add any Galt Babies we don't know about to our invitation list! If you, or someone you know, is a Galt Baby and have not received past invitations from us, please contact us and let us know so we can make sure to add you to the invitation list. If you know someone who was born in our building who has since passed on, we do want to know about them too as we want to ensure we have as accurate of a historical record of who was born here, as possible.
Please contact Lori at 403-320-4219 or lori.harasem @ galtmuseum.com (without the spaces) to register yourself or someone else. We look forward to meeting and greeting you this summer!
