Cen­te­nar­ian named Sum­mer­side Lob­ster Carnival Pa­rade mar­shal

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND - HER­ITAGE

Mil­dred Savi­dant will serve as the grand mar­shal for the 2017 Lob­ster Carnival Pa­rade.

Savi­dant, who turned 100 on Dec. 27, 2016, is still an ac­tive vol­un­teer for the MacNaught His­tory Cen­tre and Ar­chives.

A life­time res­i­dent of St. Eleanors and Sum­mer­side, Savi­dant has proven an ex­cel­lent resource in the re­search of com­mu­nity his­tory, as well as Aca­dian his­tory.

In ad­di­tion to her work with the ar­chives, Savi­dant col­lab­o­rates with his­to­rian Ge­orge Arse­nault and the Sum­mer­side and Area His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety.

She also has a large col­lec­tion of early Sum­mer­side pho­to­graphs that is sought af­ter for their rich his­tor­i­cal con­tent.
