Dear 2017 Provincial Heritage Fair Delegate

Congratulations on being chosen to represent your region at the 2017 Provincial Heritage Fair Showcase taking place at the Albert County Museum and RB Bennett Centre in Hopewell Cape, June 23 to 25, 2017.

You will be among fifteen (15) students from across the province who will be coming together and presenting their Heritage Fair projects to the public at the Museum. The staff of Heritage Branch, as well as the Albert County Museum, are now placing the finishing touches on the three-day Provincial Showcase in Hopewell Cape.

In confirmation of your participation, this parental permission form will need to be completed and signed by your parents/guardians and faxed back to me - (506-444-5760) - before May 30.

Over this three-day "Heritage Camp", you will have the opportunity to meet 14 other students from throughout New Brunswick.

On Friday, June 23rd, we will all meet at 6:00 pm (including your parents/guardians), at the Albert County Court House for a meet and greet and to register.

On Saturday, June 24th, the program will take place on-site, as you will take part in various workshops and activities. At day’s end, the delegation will join their family.

On Sunday, June 25th, you will be busy at the museum all morning, preparing for the opening ceremony at 11:00am. During this event, the Honourable Jocelyne Roy Vienneau, Lieutenant-Governor of New Brunswick and other special guests will gather for a celebration of New Brunswick Heritage. At this time, you will be presented with a special Provincial medal.

I hope that you are excited about participating! We have a special program planned for you, and are certain that your entire family will enjoy their heritage immersion weekend in Hopewell Cape. 

Looking forward to June 23, 24 and 25!
