Fields of Dreams @ Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre
Sep 22 @ 10:00 am – Nov 30 @ 5:00 pm

Each spring, they travel northward to another part of the world for one purpose … to earn a living in support of their families.

It is their faith, knowledge, work ethic and their desire for a better life for their families that keeps them returning each year to their Fields of Dreams.
Proudly presented by Community Foundation Grey Bruce. This exhibit was created in partnership with Hi-Berry Farms with support from the Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation and Consulate General of Mexico.
