Morien Memories Update

The full, detailed schedule of events will be posted soon.

On this past Sunday, February 22, the Morien Memories Committee met once again to work on planning the  week-long event that will be taking place in the village this summer.

There are several events that the Committee would like to bring to the public’s attention.

First, if anyone has pictures of Gowrie School classes, please contact the school at (902)737-2626 or Paulette MacDougall at (902)737-2286 or by e-mail at capers(at) .  These photos will be used in an open house that will be held at the school on Saturday, July 31.  Heritage Projects and artwork will be on display, as well as pictures of the construction of the school and the minute books of the Home and School Association. There will also be a room set aside for the Girl Guides and the Boy Scouts to display artifacts.   Tea and cookies will be available in the morning at the modest fee of $2.00.

Secondly, please note that there will be a Princess Tea held at the Legion on that same day.  Volunteers will be needed to help with setting up and decorating for the event.  Please contact a member of the Morien Memories Committee if you are willing to help.

The Genealogy Fair, which will be held at the Legion on Monday, August 2, still has room for extra participants.  If you are interested in getting involved with the fair and presenting information about your roots, please contact Ken MacDonald for more information.  The fair will be focused on families from the Port Morien area.

Finally, the tickets for the Morien Memories Dance will become available during late March.   Legion members and committee members may purchase two tickets (for one couple) in advance, followed by sales to the general public.   They will cost $10.00 each, and a maximum of 8 per person can be purchased with money provided upon pick-up.  Tickets will be sold for upstairs and downstairs seating, to maximum possible attendance.

If there are any questions concerning Morien Memories, please feel free to use the comment feature on this post to voice them.

See you in July!



  1. Very nice website!
    We’re currently trying to iron out dates for our vacation this summer and am hoping to be able to get back ‘home’ sometime over that week. Tickets for the dance Sat night probably sell out way ahead of the they?
    It’s been a very long time since I rode my little pony in the parade (Wilfred Dana and i :o)
    Maybe I can ride my steel horse this time!
