MISCOUCHE - The public is invited to the Acadian Museum in Miscouche on Sunday, March 23, to the projection on a large screen of the film "The Hundredth Summer" produced by the National Film Board in 1964 during the 100th anniversary of the Charlottetown Conference.

The Acadian Museum in Miscouche offers a historical look at the Island Acadians and a genealogy centre for those looking to trace their Acadian heritage.

There will be two screenings of the 50-minute film (both in English): at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.

The film is the story of the centennial celebrations in 1964 in the villages of Miscouche, North Rustico, and Victoria-by-the-Sea. Many people will recognize themselves in this film made 50 years ago or will see people they knew.

The film is lively with parades, bands, choirs, people in historical costumes as well as the opening of the Acadian Museum in August 1964.

The film viewing also provides an opportunity to visit the present exhibition on the 50 years of the Acadian Museum. Free admission, but donations are appreciated. Refreshments will be serviced.
