On November 16th, the Nor’Westers and Loyalist Museum held an ‘Appreciation Dinner’ to thank volunteers who pitched in at the museum over the past year. Graham and Gail Wells hosted and cooked the dinner. About 30 volunteers sat down to a delicious meal, heard a brief report on the year’s activities and the 2013 volunteers statistics. Bill Gilsdorf, the new Glengarry History President was introduced and upcoming events were announced.
Many thanks to Graham and Gail for a wonderful evening and for all the time and dedication they devote to the Nor’westers and Loyalist Museum. It is so appreciated!
Fibre artist Vera Longtoe Sheehan gave a wonderful presentation at the museum, July 12, on traditional Wabanaki twined plant fibre textiles. Vera was accompanied by her daughter’s, Lina Longtoe, film footage. We would like to thank Vera and Lina for a wonderful presentation, and thank those of you who could join us. They gave us a unique glimpse into Wabanaki culture.
