Eric Vallee started his tenure as the new Redcliff Museum manager last week and his hope is to research deeper into the town’s history.

“I’m going to be gathering and researching more information on the Redcliff area,” said Vallee.

“I hope to bring more information on Redcliff.”

His hope is more people will come in as the COVID protocols are reduced.

“I’m hoping we’ll get lots of people that will come in and visit and appreciate the local history,” said Vallee.

“We have a history spanning back quite a ways.”

Vallee said there is plenty history in the Museum, but there is always an opportunity for more.

He considered a museum manager many years ago for a career and jumped at the opportunity when this position came available.

“Well, it’s a steep learning curve,” he said, on the new job.

“I hoping to learn more about Redcliff history. Right now I’ve only touched the surface of a very a deep pool—so I’m going to have to do a lot studying myself on Redcliff history.”

He trained people first aid and firefighting in the region prior to accepting the Museum job.

Vallee replaces Alex and Margaret Grant, who retired.

Redcliff Museum hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
