The 2023 curling season at the Fundy Curling Club (FCC) has come to a close and what an absolutely fantastic season it has been. With spring in the air, it is now time to get you caught up on what has been happening at Albert County’s one and only curling club and what to look forward to in the future.
January got off to a great start with our ‘Get Acquainted Bonspiel’. With lots of new members at the club this season, the event brought new and long term members together for a day of fun filled games and laughs both on and off the ice. Thanks to our local Girl Guides, their leaders and parents for supplying the delicious lunch for the event. At the end of the day, between proceeds from the lunch as well as tips, the FCC was able to contribute $460 to our local group of Girl Guides.
The Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal is a commemorative medal created to mark the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II?s accession to the throne in 1952. The Platinum Jubilee Medal is a tangible and public way to acknowledge the work and dedication of those who are actively contributing to their province and country. The Medal is being awarded to 3,000 deserving New Brunswickers, ensuring an equitable representation of all regions and all fields of endeavor.
In Canada, six provinces instituted their own Platinum Jubilee Medals: Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan. It is the first time in Canadian history that a royal occasion has been commemorated with provincial medals.
