War of 1812 Arts n' Artifact Show - St. Andrew's West

Just a friendly reminder about the War of 1812 Arts n' Artifact Show that is being held on Saturday June 16th at the Roman Catholic Church Hall in St. Andrew's West.  It runs from 10 am in the morning until 4pm.  There will be exhibits from local persons including the John Carruthers of Morrisburg, Bert Cunningham from Doran Bay Resort will have some of his model ships there, Sylvianne Duval will demonstrate the ancient art of lace making.  Lost Villages Historical Society will have numerous items on display as will SD&G Historical Society.  Sine McKenna, the Stang Family will be performing.  Be sure to join us for the Official Opening at Noon where invited guests will help to re-enact the toasts at a Waterloo Dinner commemorating the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815. The admission is by good will donation and is a fundraiser for the Cornwall Township Historical Society as well as one of the first events in the War of 1812 Bicentennial Year in our area.  Spread the word, plan to attend and learn a bit about our role in the War of 1812.  Hope to see you there!
