Before the Leaves Turn
Musical / Theatrical Tribute
November 11, 2018
13:00
Reserve your seat to confirm your attendance: https://beforetheleavesturn.eventbrite.ca Before the Leaves Turn, by Jamie Bradley (KAMP: the musical) is set in a small town inspired by Sackville, New Brunswick during the span of the First World War. Presented by three actors, this reading will introduce the audience to two families who are experiencing the highs and lows of these difficult years. Touching, poignant and funny, the charming script tells the story of those “left at home,” and the characters will inspire audiences with their courage and humanity in the face of terrible uncertainty. Before the Leaves Turn was originally produced in New Brunswick, completed a successful tour through Nova Scotia in 2016 and has been a hit with people of all ages, from children to seniors and veterans. This Remembrance Day, in partnership with Kick at the Dark Theatre Company, commemorate the day by taking in this special reading at the Museum. Cost included with Museum admission. Coût compris avec l’entrée au Musée. Presented in English.

Bells of Peace
Commemorative Ceremony
November 11, 2018
16:30
At sundown on November 11, 2018 join St. Mark’s Anglican Church in a commemorative bell ringing ceremony to mark the 100th anniversary of the Armistice. Bells of Peace marks the occasion 100 years ago, when bells across Canada and around the world rang out to share the news: the Great War was over. As the sun goes down, bells will ring 100 times in communities across the country to honour the sarifices of Canadians who served in the 1914-1918 War, and to remember the cost of war, its impact on communities, and the promise of peace which generations of men and women have pursued in their service with our armed forces. The Royal Canadian Legion, in partnership with the Government of Canada, developed the Bells of Peace initiative.
