Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

huge white tent, set up on the grounds, will house sev­eral food ven­dors sell­ing such delecta­bles as car­rot and herb potage, mini quiches, pork ribs and corn on the cob and award-win­ning cheeses. The Mu­seum it­self will be sell­ing hot dogs and home-baked goods, be­tween 10:30 am and 3 pm only, to raise money for the up­keep of the Car­roll­croft gar­dens. “ Car­a­vane Je­unes Pousses will also be there of­fer­ing pani­nis, gelatos, smooth­ies and sal­ads. They’ll give free work­shops for kids like the one with a bi­cy­cle where the child makes his own smoothie by ped­dling the bike,” ex­plained the mu­seum’s Jeanne d’Arc Clow­ery.

For a small fee peo­ple will be able to go on a guided Her­itage tour of Stanstead the old-fash­ioned way: on a horse wagon. The horse wagon tours will be de­part­ing from the Colby-Cur­tis Mu­seum be­tween 1 and 3 pm. An ex­hi­bi­tion and sale by artist John Houle will take place out­doors along with car­i­ca­ture paint­ing with Trevor McKin­ven and a tin­type pho­tog­ra­phy demon­stra­tion by René Bolduc. “Peo­ple will be able to have their pho­to­graph taken us­ing the tin­type method,” said Jeanne d’Arc.

Visi­tors to the Mu­seum can also buy, with a $2 do­na­tion, the chance to have their name put into a draw­ing for a life­time mem­ber­ship to the Stanstead His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety, val­ued at $500. “We’ll draw the name of the win­ner of the life­time mem­ber­ship at 3 pm.,” she con­cluded.
