OUR upcoming events
When: Saturday/Sunday, July 17/18 & August 14/15.
Where: The Town Hall/L’Association Socio-Culturelle, 370 Rue Beach, Métis-sur-Mer.
Who: All citizens can share their artistic talents, family history and photos at the exhibition
What: All four components of the Live Our Heritage project will be on display:
- Trails to our past: Come and please add your recollections to our large-format area map; sign up to be interviewed and share some of your family history. Do you have an old family treasure to display?
- Stitching our generations together: While the planned assembly of two quilts wasn’t possible, creativity was by no means shut down as many spent COVID isolation time on crafts of many types. You’ll find examples of rugging, knitting, and other art forms. If you’d like to display some of your handiwork, please contact Pam Andersson (pandersson@Heritagelsl.ca, 418-936-3016) to discuss details. Note: While space is limited, arrangements can be made by exhibitors to sell their creations following the exhibit.
- A picture says a thousand words… Enjoy all photos submitted for the photo competition, as well as the winners. Get ideas for how ‘Then’ pictures could be recreated ‘Now’.
- Piecing our history together: Metis Beach School (MBS) students have created, with the help and guidance of HLSL’s Lisan Chng and MBS’s Lynn Fournier, mosaic stools showing the area’s flora and fauna (flowers, fish, birds, and animals). The exhibits will display the images, as well as designs for two mosaic benches to be placed at the United and Leggatt’s cemeteries. Note: Why should kids have all the fun? Sign up for summer workshops and be a part of the mosaicking team for these two benches.
