*These concert series would not be possible without the generous support of the McGrane-Pearson Endowment Fund and several private donors.*
Join us Thursday, December 12th from 7-9 PM for our Jazz Concert Series in our historic parlour. This evening's performance will present Juno-nominated Jazz vocalist Karin Plato with Juno-nominated and Grammy award winning mandolin player John Reischman and guitarist John Miller.

The jazz concert is on Thursday December 12th at 7pm. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for students, seniors and members. Please arrive 15-20 minutes in advance for seat selection.

Goodbye, Montanna!

Hello folks,

This is Montanna - I want to let everyone know that I've resigned as Community Engagement Coordinator at Roedde House Museum as I'll be returning to school in January.

I'm planning to stay involved with Roedde House while I complete my coursework, so this isn't a 'goodbye' so much as a transition to other things!

I want to thank all of our volunteers who've put in such hard work and made my job so wonderful this past year.

Job Posting: Community Engagement Coordinator

With Montanna's departure, the position of Community Engagement Coordinator is now open. Please see here for job description and information on how to apply.
