I come here (to the Anne Murray Centre) once a year to raise money for the museum so that we can keep it open for as long as we can," added Murray.
"It's been a great day," stated Marcie Meekins, the Executive Director of the Anne Murray Centre. "We are so fortunate to have Anne give back to her community in this way," she added. "The response that we have received has been phenomenal," said Meekins. "We are grateful to the town."
