“As a community-based business celebrating our own legacy of 122 years, we recognized Canada 150 as a perfect moment to step up and specifically help these organizations in their important work to remember, recount and re-enact our shared history for future generations,” said Commonwell Mutual Insurance Group president and CEO Tim Shauf.

The Glengarry Pioneer Museum has been in operation since 1962 and has ten buildings on site that have historical significance to the local community.

Cornwall Seaway News reported that the Commonwell’s $25,000 cheque will be presented to the museum in the coming days, with the museum’s board to decide how it will invest the money.
