7th Heritage Forum Coming Up

The 7th annual Heritage forum will take place in Makkovik from June 12 to 16 this year.

Jill Larkam is the Acting Director for Tourism in Goose Bay.

She says delegates attending the Forum are to include people from each town.

Them Days, the Heritage Society, Researchers and people from Resources will also be in attendance.

Larkam says during the event, the new CD featuring Karrie Obed and Mark Turner performing will be launched.

Delegates will be presenting the Heritage projects they’ve been working on since the last Forum, plus their work plans.

There will be updates presented on the Tradition and Transition project.

She says there will be a visit to the school to do presentations, and the students will also do a presentation.

An evening is planned for craft people to sell their traditional crafts they made as well.

Larkam says delegates will also travel to Postville for the day on Thursday, June 16.
There will be some presentations from different delegates, and then they will get a tour of the community.

We will have more information about the upcoming Heritage Forum before the event.
