A Taste of History, the ever popular fundraising dinner presented by the Tantramar Heritage Trust (THT), will take place this Saturday, Mar. 22, at 6 p.m. in St. Ann's Anglican Church Hall, Westcock. Anyone with an appreciation of local history is invited to attend.
This year’s theme is “Our Acadian Heritage" and, in celebration of all things Acadian, a traditional menu is planned, featuring chicken fricot, fishcakes, meat pie and other historic favourites prepared by Laurie Ann Wesselby of Sandpiper Catering.
In keeping with the theme, Monette Gould, professor of voice in Mount Allison's music department, will perform Acadian songs and Sarah Marshall, a music student, will play traditional airs and reels on the fiddle. Al Smith, a long-time member of the THT, will be on hand to conduct his historical trivia contest, a recurring highlight of past dinners and there will be a silent auction as well.
The Tantramar Heritage Trust has been in existence since 1996 and operates two museums in Sackville: the Boultenhouse Heritage Centre and the Campbell Carriage Factory Museum. The goal of the THT is to promote preservation of heritage resources in the Tantramar Region and proceeds from the dinner will be used to this end.
