Exhibitors to highlight the past 150 years of local history  

On Friday, February 24, two dozen exhibitors will come together to share artifacts, collections and special projects that celebrate local history. It’s all part of the St. Marys Heritage Fair, an annual event that is jointly hosted by the St. Marys Historical Society and the St. Marys Museum.

Now in its 21st year, the Heritage Fair is a chance to catch up on developments in local history. Exhibitors include organizations and individuals, all of whom look forward to explaining their heritage projects and collections. The theme of this year’s fair is “Celebrating Stonetown” in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday. A number of exhibitors will be sharing their collections and projects that celebrate the past 150 years of local history.

The event will take place from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Pyramid Recreation Centre. There will be a presentation at 7:30 p.m. to acknowledge property owners within St. Marys’ Heritage Conservation District who have recently completed work to preserve and beautify their properties. As in previous years, there will also be a silent auction during the event.

Admission to the Heritage Fair is free and all are welcome. Those planning to attend the St. Marys Lincoln’s game are encouraged to drop by the event before the puck drops or pay a visit during intermission.

Members of local organizations with a longstanding history in the community and individuals with unique collections of historic items are welcome to be exhibitors at the Heritage Fair. Those interested should contact the Museum by Tuesday, February 21 to register.
