Bicentennial Commemoration Skirmish at Hoople's Creek - June 30, 2013

Here is some info on a great event for people of all ages - The event is free to the public, donations cheerfully and with thanks accepted at the event.  If you are interested in attending the dinner at 4 (which I believe will be a fitting end to an event filled day), please contact me for tickets as we have to let the caterer know the number of attendees.  There is a limited number for sale, so don't delay, get in touch with me today!

On June 30, 2013, the Lost Villages Historical Society is holding a “Bicentennial Commemoration of the Skirmish at Hoople’s Creek” at the Lost Villages Museum on County Road #2 near Long Sault, Ontario at Ault Park.  This event, a fundraiser for the planned Gazebo on the museum grounds, is sure to be a day filled with fun, information and entertainment.  Beginning with a commemorative church service in the Sandtown Advent Christian Church at 10 am, followed by a Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph on the museum grounds, there will be pre-Tattoo entertainment featuring local singers, a Settlers Market with a variety of goods available for purchase and displays located in the various buildings on the museum grounds.  The highlight of the day will be a “Tattoo at Two” which will feature local musicians and artists including the SD&G Pipe Band, Cadet Bands, Brockville Pipe Band, the 1st Grenville 1812 militia.  This jam packed day concludes at 4pm with a dinner and show at Ault Park.  The Beef on a bun with all the trimmings is catered by the St. Andrew’s Knights of Columbus #10416 with entertainment provided by Rev & The Choir Boys, all inclusive for $12.00, advance ticket purchase only please.  For more information on this event, please feel free to contact the Lost Villages Historical Society at info@lostvillages.ca or carol.goddard@sympatico.ca.
