“It truly was a lot of fun collecting Coca-Cola and Elvis Presley paraphernalia and memorabilia items over the years,” said Rick Clark. “Both Coca-Cola and Elvis Presley have stood the test of time and when people visit the exhibit, I hope it will bring back some happy memories for them as well.”

Wellington County Collects is a community programme the Museum launched in 2013 that features collections from Wellington County residents. The programme supports the museum’s mandate to tell the stories of people, places, and events in Wellington County and to involve members of the community in the exhibition development process.
