Every year the Town of Sackville and the Sackville Rotary Club welcome new and returning Mount Allison students to Sackville with a traditional Corn Boil. The event usually features live music and is offered in conjunction with the Sackville Farmer’s Market.
This year, however, will be different. Due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19, this year’s Corn Boil will be held on Sunday, September 6th from 10:00 a.m. until approximately 3:00 p.m. at Bill Johnstone Memorial Park. The event will be very structured in nature and will be open exclusively to pre-registered Mount Allison Students. Students will be welcomed with a smile by Rotary volunteers and members of Council before exiting the park to enjoy their corn at locations pre-determined by the Mount Allison Orientation Committee.
All safety measures required by the province of New Brunswick will be followed to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all of those involved. The Town would like to thank residents for welcoming our students with open arms and we look forward to doing the same on September 6th.
