On Wednesday, August 8, the Merrickville & District Historical Society invites its members, supporters, residents of Merrickville-Wolford, and local businesses to join us in creating an exciting interactive exhibit. Participants will be invited to mark out their lives in Blockhouse Park, using yarn and wooden stakes, alongside figures from Merrickville-Wolford’s history. Small cards will be used to show the special events in each individual’s life. This exhibit, as part of the Merrickville-Wolford 225th Anniversary, is designed to celebrate our community in all its diversity from inception to today. The exhibit will remain in the park until August 10, at which point the cards will be used to make a scrap book to accompany the yarn, which will be woven into a Merrickville-Wolford tapestry, both of which will be displayed at the Blockhouse Museum.
The exhibit will begin at 12 noon, and an official ceremony will be held at 2 p.m.
