On July 13th 2010, the Musée de Kent had the pleasure of having the visit of a group of nuns from the Sisters of Charity of the Immaculate-Conception. The Sisters came from many parts of Canada.
Sister Thérèse Vautour from the Sisters of Notre-Dame-du-Sacré-Coeur, a student at the Convent of the Immaculate-Conception of Bouctouche, served as their guide.
On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of their graduation, a few of the graduating class of 1950 of the Convent of the Immaculate Conception of Bouctouche, came to reminisce at the Musée de Kent.
Our best wishes to everyone!
On September 17, 18 and 19, the Musée de Kent was happy to host certain activities of the Bouctouche Eco Festival, such as a tasting of local products (cheeses, breads, oysters, etc.).
A jazz musical presentation was given by Edgar Joseph. An exposition of hooked rugs was presented by Les Hookeuses de Bouctouche.
Thank you to all who helped make this event a success.
The Caravane du sentier de l'Étoile, organized by Jean Gaudet, left Port-Royal on July 22 and arrived at Neguac on Wednesday August 5th. many stops of historical and touristic interest were made every day.
