HUNTER RIVER – As part of the P.E.I. 2014 celebrations being held across the province, the community of Hunter River is hosting an evening celebration of art, history and community on Saturday, March 8, at 7 p.m. in the main hall of the Hunter River Community Centre.

Three new pieces of art created by artists Maurice Bernard of Summerside, Kris Taylor of New Glasgow, and Perry Neatby of South Granville, will be unveiled. These art pieces depict the life and history of the community over the last 150 years.

The evening will also mark the 40th anniversary of community council in Hunter River. Past and present members of the volunteer council will be recognized as much of the growth and development of the community is a result of their efforts.

The public is invited to attend. Light refreshments and entertainment are part of this event. This project was funded by P.E.I. 2014 and the Community of Hunter River.
