In celebration of the 70th Anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II ascending to the throne, the Albert County Historical Society will host a Platinum Jubilee Ceremony at the Court House on the grounds of the Albert County Museum, Hopewell Cape, on Saturday, June 4, 2022. This event will provide an opportunity to pay tribute to “our Queen of Canada”, who, for many of us, is the only Monarch we have ever known.
The 70th Jubilee programme on June 4, 1:00pm at the Court House, will include visiting dignitaries, musical selections, and participation of students and community. A Royal Oak tree will be planted to commemorate the Jubilee event. An honoured guest, who was a Grade 8 student at the 1937 ceremony when she planted a Royal Oak seedling, will unveil the tree’s engraved 70th Jubilee marker.
In the Community Hall from 2:00pm – 4:00pm, there will be impressive displays of memorabilia pertaining to Her Majesty’s reign, as well as an exhibit of the Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire. An informal reception in the Hall will conclude the Jubilee activities. A Guest Book will be signed as a keepsake of this historical 70th Jubilee Celebration held during the Museum’s 60th anniversary year.
Admission is complimentary for the afternoon Jubilee event. Some chairs will be set up on the Court House lawn for the outside ceremony; however, you may wish to bring your own chair. If the weather is unpleasant on June 4, the ceremony will be held inside the Court House.
We look forward to seeing you at the 70th Jubilee Celebration Day at the Museum. Thank you.
