Centenarian named Summerside Lobster Carnival Parade marshal
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She also has a large collection of early Summerside photographs that is sought after for their rich historical content.
