20th Anniversary Party

On the afternoon of July 23, 2017, the sun was shining, the Tely 10 runners were relaxing after a long run, and the community of Logy Bay-Middle Cove-Outer Cove was celebrating the 20th anniversary of the town's museum.

Later in the day, we honoured the original members of the Heritage Committee who each devoted 20 years to the museum,

heard a few words from Mayor John Kennedy,

and saw first hand how the love of heritage is being passed on to the next generation through a wonderful and informative presentation by Aurora Hickey about the Hickey Homestead.

Finally, Delores Wheeler, chair of the Heritage Committee in 1997, and Julie Pomeroy, current chair, opened the 1997 Time Capsule and shared the wonderful art, poetry and thoughts of the student of St. Francis of Assisi during that Cabot Come Home Year.

After some cake, it was time to go home.

On behalf of the museum staff and the Heritage Committee, thank you all for coming out and showing your continued love and support for the museum. This is a community museum, and could never showcase the history and culture of Logy Bay-Middle Cove-Outer Cove without that commitment. Thank you.

And, if you missed the party, not to worry, the contents of the Time Capsule will be on display until the end of August. Then it will be permanently housed in the museum archives for future access.
