Philip's Magical Paradise to close in September?

Read Dean Gunnarson's Facebook post from August 25 and watch his mini-tour of Philip's Magical Paradise in Giroux (just south of Winnipeg).  It opened in 1991 as a tribute to Marilyn and Gordon Hornan's youngest son, Philip Hornan.  Philip was a magic enthusiast who succumbed to cancer at the age of 15.

From Dean's video, it sounds as if the museum is set to close forever, unless one of you out there has an idea on how to keep it alive.

Dean Gunnarson in the Westman Journal

From the Westman Journal:
Imagine being shackled and chained inside a glass box filled with water. It’s a stunt few people can pull off. Escape Artist Dean Gunnarson is going to attempt just that at this year’s Toastmaster’s Conference.

While being on stage and performing in front of people seems to come natural to Gunnarson, the performer has had to overcome fears of his own.

“He has quite an inspirational story. He’s faced a lot of his fears,” said Ryan Sturgeon.

Gunnarson’s attempt to escape the Russian Death Tank will cap off the conference being held Nov. 11-12 at the Victoria Inn.
