As part of the MRC’s Regional Tourism Information Station (RTIS) project, youth gathered last Wednesday at the Pontiac museum to learn about the history of the Pontiac.

The project, a joint partnership between the Maison des Jeunes Youth Co-op and the MRC, seeks to teach youth both new skills and about the history of the Pontiac by having them learn from local artists and historians. On Wednesday, youth received a tour of the museum from staff and were taught about felting from local artist Brandie Lekovic.
