    Ireland's Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac University
CBC Project Team Award Winner Spotlight
with Toys for Tots Collection
Tuesday, December 9, 2014*

Learn from key team members from the CBC 2014 Project Team Award winning Project how they used collaboration and best practices to take this unique project from concept to operation and see the results firsthand at the museum itself.  The main goal of the team was to reuse and renovate an 1890 library building in Hamden into a museum housing the University's growing historical and contemporary artwork devoted to Ireland's Great Hunger. 
In addition, hear about ongoing and upcoming capital projects at Quinnipiac University.
The Museum's collection portrays the extensive suffering wrought by the famine of 1845-52, which saw Ireland's population drop by half, with one million people dying from hunger and illness, and another two million people emigrating to America, Australia, Canada and Great Britain.  The Museum explores the political, economic and social climate of the time, including the troubled relationship between Ireland and Great Britain.

Continuing with our annual tradition, please bring with you an unwrapped toy or teen item to donate to Toys for Tots.  Bring an item you think a youngster would like. No realistic-looking weapons or gifts containing food please. For pre-teens and teens, consider sporting equipment, hair styling items, backpacks, iTunes and other gift cards, board games, hand-held electronics, purses, or radio-controlled cars.

*In the case of a snow cancellation, the event will be held the following day, Wednesday, December 10, same time and location.
