PEI NATIONAL PARK – CONSULTATION MEETING:

Dear Parks Canada Stakeholder,

You are invited to a meeting to learn about options to replace the current dune crossing at Cavendish Beach in Prince Edward Island National Park on Thursday, July 19 at 6:30 pm.

The present structure has reached the end of its life cycle and requires complete replacement. It also currently does not meet accessibility standards. The new structure will allow Parks Canada to continue to meet the needs of visitors and locals who wish to connect with nature while, at the same time, protecting the fragile and dynamic dune ecosystem in the area.

A consultant, WSP, was engaged to research and develop options for the new dune crossing, including relocating it to an area less susceptible to erosion. The new pathway will be determined by examining slope requirements, dune heights, wind patterns, sand transport models and ecosystem environmental impacts. The consultants will present their design proposals and will be available to answer questions about their recommended solution.

Goals of this project:

· Enhance visitor experience
· Provide learning opportunity for visitors
· Provide an accessible beach opportunity
· Protect the coastal ecosystem, in particular the sand dunes

We are currently in the final design phase of this project and would appreciate your feedback. Your comments will help to inform the detailed design plan for the new dune crossing. Once the design has been finalized, construction will take place from mid-September to December 2018.

Cavendish Beach Dune Crossing Meeting
Date: Thursday, July 19, 2018
Time: 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Location: North Rustico Lions Club

The doors will be open at 6:00 pm for those who would like to come early to review display boards and talk informally to the consultants and Parks Canada staff.

Light refreshments will be served.

RSVP to pnipe.peinp@pc.gc.ca or by calling 902-672-6350 if you would like to join us.



STANLEY BRIDGE CENTRE BAKE SALE
MARCO POLO CAMPGROUND
SATURDAY, JULY 21, 2018
9:00-11:00 A.M.

This is a fundraiser for the centre.


PEI NATIONAL PARK CONSULTATION MEETING:

Dear Parks Canada Stakeholder,

You are cordially invited to a meeting on Tuesday, July 31, 2018 for a presentation of the proposed final design for the new interpretive exhibits for the new visitor centre at Green Gables Heritage Place.

We recognize that this is a very busy time of year and apologize for the short notice, but in order to meet our timelines to open the exhibit to the public in spring 2019, we need to finalize the design by early August. To ensure as many people as possible can attend, we are holding two meetings—one at the University of PEI in Charlottetown and one at Green Gables Heritage Place in Cavendish. Please feel free to attend the one that is most convenient for you.

Parks Canada is undertaking a comprehensive site rehabilitation at Green Gables, which includes a new visitor centre, gift shop, and café. This project gives us an amazing opportunity to revisit and revitalize the exhibits and other interpretive elements of the site. Based on the feedback received on the draft interpretive concept, as well as on the draft design concept, we would like to present the proposed final design and gather further feedback before moving forward towards fabrication.

The three main themes for interpretation at Green Gables include:
· The factual story of L.M. Montgomery,
· The fictional Anne of Green Gables character; and
· The Cavendish landscape that inspired L.M. Montgomery and that plays an important role in the books.

Six further subthemes were identified during the master planning phase of the redevelopment. These have guided the development of revised interpretation and visitor experience, and include: imagination, beauty, friendship, belonging, freedom and self.

Here are the details of the meetings.

Green Gables Interpretive Exhibit Design Presentation and Discussion
Date: Tuesday, July 31, 2018
Time: 9:30 am to 11:30 am
Location: Faculty Lounge, Main Building, UPEI, Charlottetown
Note: free parking is available in any of the student parking lots and there is metered parking near the Student Union Building

Green Gables Interpretive Exhibit Design Presentation and Discussion
Date: Tuesday, July 31, 2018
Time: 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Location: Green Gables Heritage Place, Cavendish

Please note – Doors will open 30 minutes before the meetings and participants are invited to come early to look at the presentation materials in advance of the meeting.

Light refreshments will be served.

Please RSVP to pnipe.peinp@pc.gc.ca or by calling 902-672-6350.

SEAWOOD ESTATES BOOK CLUB:

Hi Everyone,

Fifteen book lovers gathered on July 4, 2018 to discuss The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway (Canada) and Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue (Cameroon). As usual, fantastic discussion about both books!

Our meeting began with one of our members, Jennifer Ferrence, playing a selection of Albinoni’s Adagio in G minor, which is the piece referenced in The Cellist of Sarajevo. Many thanks to Jen for setting the mood for our discussion. We encouraged her to bring her cello to the deck and play amid the trees and within sight of the bay anytime she is able!

A second treat for the book club was the beautiful display of a queen-size quilt, shams, and matching teddy bear. Peggy McKillop is the book club member who designed and hand stitched the gorgeous quilt “Island Dream.” What began as a small wall hanging ended up being Peggy’s dream!

A third item before our discussion was to recognize Eleanor Hora for her enlightening Op Ed column in The Guardian on June 27, 2018. Congratulations to all of our many talented members! We did note that an amazing audience is important for all arts–musical and visual. Our book club members are an amazing audience!

Our July book club meeting is Wednesday, August 1, 2018 at 10 a.m. at The Rowell’s cottage in Seawood Estates in Stanley Bridge. The books to be discussed are 1. The History of Bees by Maja Lunde and The Nine Lives of Charlotte Taylor by Sally Armstrong.

The turnaround for our August book club will be quick so here’s some information to help you plan your reading time. August’s book club: Wednesday, August 15, 2018. The books to be discussed are 1. Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan and 2. The Runaway Children by Sandy Taylor.

Everyone is welcome. Call 782.462.2001 for further information. The area code 782 is a new PEI area code. Should not be a long distance, but as with some 902 codes you may have to dial a 1 to begin.

Thank you to all! Keep reading!
Judy Rowell

CBMF 2018 RCMP messages: rules around alcohol
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
News release

There will be some simple rules when it comes to enjoying the festivities during CBMF 2018. Too drunk before the gates, you’re not getting in. Too drunk once inside, you’ll be leaving early.

Tailgate parties are illegal on P.E.I. Drinking in public in the parking lot, on your way to the event or anywhere that is not a sanctioned serving area or your own property will likely get you a ticket as a souvenir. Underage drinking will not be tolerated – it’s illegal. It’s also illegal to provide anyone under the age of 19 with alcohol so expect a charge if you are caught doing so.

Make good choices and have a great #CBMF2018

With the warmer weather upon us, many Atlantic Canadians are getting out their grills. It’s a good time to remind people about summer safety around barbecues, and of keeping little ones safe near backyard equipment and play areas. Please pass this information on to your organization’s members or feel welcome to post on your website, share through social media, or on bulletin boards.

Barbecue safety tips
– make sure your barbecue is in good working order, especially if it has been sitting in storage
– check for blocked burners or metal tubes, and damaged seals
– follow the manufacturer’s instructions for using and cleaning
– set your barbecue up in a well-ventilated area and on an even surface
– inspect your cleaning brush for signs of damage
– check grills and barbecued food for loose bristles
– stop using your brush if the bristles are coming loose or sticking to the grill
– replace your brush on a regular basis
– keep kids away from barbecues at all times
– for more tips, visit Canada.ca (keywords: barbecue safety)
– check out our Is Your Child Safe series to see more summer safety tips for kids

Report any incidents involving a consumer product
– Please report any incidents involving a wire barbecue brush to Health Canada as well as to the store where you bought it. For questions about specific product issues or toys, you may also contact Health Canada’s Consumer Product Safety program at 1-866-662-0666 or cps-spc@hc-sc.gc.ca.

Ghost Light: a story that needed to be told.

(Charlottetown, P.E.I.) – Shawn Wright, one of Canada’s most recognized stage actors, is making his debut at The 2018 Charlottetown Festival with his compelling show, Ghost Light. As both the actor and the author, this is the first play he has written; and it has already won acclaim in both Toronto and New Brunswick.

Shawn spent the final months of his mother’s life travelling from Toronto to her nursing home in the Maritimes to spend as much time with her as he could before she passed. During these visits, she would spin stories of her life during the commercial breaks of her favourite TV show, Murder She Wrote. Wright chronicled these stories and developed a hilarious and poignant story about the relationship between mother and son, growing up in New Brunswick the youngest of seven children, and, most importantly, as a tribute to his mother for giving him his love of life.

“She is the reason that I am an actor,” says Wright. “She used acting in community theatre as a break from motherhood. Since I was the youngest, I got to go with her to rehearsals. I was basically raised in the wings by a host of colourful theatrical personalities.”

Wright plays every character in the play, including his mother during different stages of her life. A blessed cross necklace given to him by her to wear on stage never leaves his neck.

“I love playing my mother,” says Wright. “For 80 minutes during the show I know that she is with me on stage.”

It’s that connection that has made Ghost Light so successful when Wright performed in in New Brunswick and Toronto last year to sold-out crowds. He says people would line up after the show to talk to him and share similar stories of caring for their aging parents.

“By telling my story I am creating a safe space for people to get in touch with their own suppressed feelings around grief and give voice to it,” says Wright. “The show represents my generation of caregivers and how we deal with aging parents and death and how we maintain a sense of humour through it all. The show is filled with relatable hilarious anecdotes.”

A “ghost light” is a theatrical term referring to an electric light that is left energized on stage when the theatre is unoccupied and would otherwise be completely dark. Aside from its obvious practical purpose, there are superstitions associated with it, as well. The light is meant to provide a warm welcome to the ghosts of the theatre to congregate on stage all night and recreate the best performances they played in life.

Wright says it was the perfect title for his play. “My mother told me that story when I was a kid and looking back now, I remember her being at her most beautiful as she told it to me.”

Shawn Wright is one of Canada’s busiest actors, often appearing at both the Shaw Festival and the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. Ghost Light is presented in partnership with Theatre New Brunswick. The published version had a book launch in Toronto this month.

NEXT DEVELOPMENT PERMIT DEADLINE: July 6, 2018


BOOKMARK CANADA PLAQUE UNVEILING – SITE OF LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY’S CAVENDISH HOME:
Everyone is welcome to the unveiling of the Bookmark Canada plaque at the Site of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Cavendish Home on Sunday afternoon, June 24th.
The ceremony will begin, at the side of the old red-stone foundation, at 4 p.m.

Jennie and David Macneill and other family members will be there, of course, and Jennie herself is slated to lift the covering from the large ceramic plaque that will be fixed in concrete right below where Montgomery’s own “gable window” was. The plaque has the full text of Montgomery’s 1897 poem “The Gable Window” on it — and the poem describes just what Montgomery saw and felt looking out that upstairs bedroom window. The view today is almost identical.

For more on the importance of the Bookmark Canada plaques, please see: www.projectbookmarkcanada.ca

Everyone on PEI should be proud that this national organization has chosen the Macneill site as the first place on Prince Edward Island to receive a national Bookmark Canada plaque.
Come to celebrate together!
