Heritage Group meeting of April 18, 2019.
by Leslie Walsh
After Barbara Gluck retired and moved to Sandy Hook in 2004, she joined the respected Gimli Art Club. As the Chairperson overseeing the Gimli Seawall Gallery, she noticed that many visitors asked where they might find the ‘Gimli Glider’ Museum, only to be told there was none. This cemented Barbara’s determination to continue to make a case for a permanent museum to be established within the townsite. As a founding member and current president of the Gimli Glider Exhibit (GGE), she was invited to share with the Heritage Group how the exhibit came to be, and the response over the past three years of visitors keen to learn more about the skilful safe landing of Air Canada flight 143.
