Lawrence Museum farewells ‘Scruff’

Scruff 2006 – 2017 Lawrence Museum members sadly farewelled Scruff (pictured) the museum mascot on Tuesday, June 20. Scruff had taken on the role of mascot almost three years ago and carried out her role with great enthusiasm, especially at morning tea. Scruff welcomed all volunteers on their arrival at the museum, and was a great hit with visitors. Scruff took her promotional activities seriously, and attended all Lawrence Museum events. She featured in many publicity photographs. Despite taking on a battle with cancer, Scruff maintained her duties to last, and didn’t let this affect her happy, friendly nature. Scruff will be very much missed by all. May there be much bacon, Brie cheese, and chocolate in doggy heaven. Roz Jones
