Membership

The Minudie Heritage Association is seeking additional members. $15 is the annual individual membership fee or $25 for a family membership.

Your membership will give you an opportunity to gain insight and knowledge of historic Minudie and Barronsfield.

You can learn about:

  1. The Mi’kmaq – the earliest known inhabitants of Minudie and their culture
  2. The Acadians – their robust culture and influence, and their tragic history
  3. The leading historical figures of the day and their important contributions to the growth of Minudie and the surrounding area. You will learn about people such as Colonel Frederick Joseph Wallet DesBarres, Colonel Edward Barron (Barronsfield), and Amos Peck “King” Seaman.

 

A member may choose to become a volunteer, if they wish to, with any of the following:

  • The Lake Cemetery
  • St. Denis Church
  • Amos Seaman School Museum
  • Seaman United Church
  • Amos Thomas Seaman House (formerly the home of Ruth Symes)

Members may also wish to help out with community events such as Minudie Day, the Blessing of the Crops, or participate in the annual Quilt Show.

Membership entitles you to a vote at all regular monthly meetings, as well as, the annual general meeting. At the Annual General Meeting, each member is provided an opportunity to become a director of the Minudie Heritage Association if they wish to put their name forward. There are a maximum of 11 directors on the Association board at any given time.
