The Museum’s 4th anniversary sunday lunch

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at 5:56pm

The 4th anniversary Sunday lunch marking the inauguration in 2013 of Il-Ħaġar Museum was a success. About 80 Museum supporters attended despite some difficulties connected with its promotion. In fact it was practically an event that people learned about mostly by word of mouth.

Speaking at Hotel Ta’ Ċenċ, curator Mgr Dr Joseph Farrugia, thanked the patrons for their support and also the hotel management for its part-sponsorship. The proceeds for the Museum amounted to €645.

Unfortunately Sunday 19th February clashed with the beginning of the carnival festivities in Gozo. This could not be avoided. Some could not attend because of active participation at Nadur or family outings. The carnival season runs to just before the beginning of Lent.

The anniversary lunch, which usually attracts about a hundred people, was supported by 79 guests attending and by others supporting it through contributions. The last lunch in support of the Museum was held in January 2017 and had attracted over 120 supporters.

The next festive lunch in support of the basilica museum will be feld on St George’s Day, Sunday, April 23 2017, at Calypso Hotel, Marsalforn.

Another Temporary Philatelic Exhibition at il-Ħaġar Museum

Wednesday, September 14, 2016 at 8:32pm

The Gozo Philatelic Society has set up a new exhibit in their showcase on level -1 at Il-Ħaġar. A selection of philatelic items from the renowned Juncker Melitensia collection recently donated to the GPS have been chosen which should be of interest to non-philatelists too: numerous original 19th century letters sent from Malta using Great Britain stamps from the reign of Queen Victoria, together with further loose stamps showing clearly the A25 (both types) or M identificatory postmarks. As has become the practice, these will remain on show for 5 weeks – with something new available towards the end of October.
