Tantramar Heritage Trust AGMMay 30
There will be a short business meeting, followed by presentation of our Volunteer of the Year Award. This year we are delighted to honour Colin MacKinnon for his invaluable contributions to the Trust over many years.
Following the meeting, we are very pleased to have guest speaker Charlie Scobie give a presentation about his new book, People of the Tantramar, which will be published by the Trust in September 2018. The book will feature 47 biographical sketches of people who have lived and worked in the Tantramar area over the centuries. Each entry will have a portrait or photo of the person, about 800 words of text, and a photo of something in the community today which has associations with the subject.
Planned as a sequel to the best-selling 2013 Sackville Then and Now: New Brunswick’s Oldest Town in Photographs, the book will have a similar format: hard cover, glossy paper, full colour, and 108 pages. Like the earlier book it will be printed by award-winning Canadian colour printers Friesens of Altona, Manitoba. The book will sell for $25, but an advance sales campaign will be launched at the AGM, when copies of the book can be ordered at a discount price of $22.50. This campaign will continue through the months of June and July.
Light refreshments will be served and all are welcome. If you are unable to attend, but would like a copy of our annual report, please contact Karen at the office either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (506) 536-2541.
