A kiosk for 175 years of history



 Imprimer   Envoyer 

In memory of the pioneers and builders who built the village of Bury over the past 175 years, the Bury Historical and Heritage Society's board of directors invited the public to come together around the new kiosk in the Memorial Park. More than 200 people responded to the invitation. It was around this structure that, over the years, the population has gathered during the sunny days of summer to attend brass band practices or Sunday performances. Edward Pedersen, the Society's new president, said it is "undertaking to renew the vision of Bury's history. We discussed several possibilities such as a website, a renovation or restoration project, a program to attract youth..." He announced this with pride during the inauguration of the gathering place, and added that this construction would bring life to Bury and continue to bear witness to its vitality. The day began with an ecumenical service. Presiding were Tami Spires, United Church of Canada Minister for the United Eaton Valley Pastoral Charge, and Father Daniel Gilbert of the Catholic Community of Saint-François-de-Laval. The Saint-Raphaël Church of Bury opened its doors to welcome everyone, and the crowd then went to the park for a picnic. The weather was kind to both young and old. And under the direction of conductor Martin Ducharme, the Big Bam Band gave its all to offer spectators a most successful concert. Roch Lapointe, former president of the Historical Society, recalled that this new kiosk replaced the old one. Its planning and construction took some two years of work. He noted that the plaques bearing the names of donors had only just been installed. From left to right, Martin Ducharme, the Big Bam Band's musical director, Roch Lapointe, former president of the Bury Historical and Heritage Society, and Edward Pedersen, who replaced him, were proud to preside over the inauguration of the new kiosk in the Memorial Park.
