Brandon MB – Brandon has a rich history in the automotive Industry.  To reflect this, the BGMA is pleased to announce the official grand opening of its newest exhibit, “Carstruck: Brandon’s Automotive History.  The BGMA along with our sponsor, Murray Auto Centre is proud to present a complete history of the automotive sector in Brandon.  The display is made possible by the support of the Murray Auto Centre, which has been a part of Brandon and Westman automotive sector since 1926.  BGMA Board member Tyson Tame commented that “The BGMA as a board felt it was important to highlight the vast history within the automotive sector in Brandon.  There have been many Economic Spinoffs from automotive retailing in Brandon.  Jobs have been created, and it has affected so many lives in Westman”.  The grand opening will be held on Saturday, June 11th, at 1pm at the Museum, 19 – 9th Street.  The display will run from June 11th, 2016 until September.
