Despite the rain, the Albert County Museum's 6th Annual R.B. Bennett Day went ahead on Saturday. The day, meant to fall close to Bennett's July 3rd birthday, honours Canada's 11th prime minister and the only Canadian prime minister born in New Brunswick. The morning breakfast brought out 41 people and the kitchen had only three pancakes and a little bit of bacon left over at noon. Due to the rain the plan to barbecue hot dogs was abandoned and they were boiled instead.
MLA Brian Kierstead and MP Alaina Lockhart were both in attendance and there were about 20 people present in total for the presentations and refreshments
