This will be an opportunity to meet other Home Child descendants in an informal setting. Maybe you will meet others who came over on the same ship or even long lost relatives. Bring your children and grandchildren, your parents and grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins for a fun afternoon.
Take a walk along some of the trails, admire Joseph Howe Falls and the Gorge, climb the 175-step Jacob's Ladder, see the Bur Oak that was planted in memory of our BHC and have your picture taken sitting on the BHC memorial bench.
If you have questions, you can reach Catherine West at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or 1-902-384-2097
The association will also be holding its 13th Annual Reunion on Saturday October 17th, 2015 at the Bible Hill Junior High School located at 741 Collage Road, Truru, Nova Scotia.
It will be an all-day affair from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and to pre-register or for information, please contact Catherine West at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or 1-902-384-2097.
