The Tantramar Heritage Trust is pleased to present their annual “Taste of History” fundraising dinner on Sunday, November 4, based on an actual dinner for ships’ captains which took place at “Captains’ Corner” (Main St. and Queen’s Rd.), around the same date in 1890. Seven local captains gathered for a farewell dinner for Captain Amos Atkinson. The other six captains were likely Frith Atkinson, Stephen Atkinson, Thomas Reese Anderson, Ernest L. Anderson, Captains Thomas and William Egan, or possibly Captain Wilson Estabrooks who lived just up the street.
The dinner will feature a delicious menu recreated from the actual dinner and catered by Laurie-Ann Wesselby of Sandpiper Catering. In addition to the meal, there will be decorations and live music with Saint John shantymen “Before the Mast” performing sea shanties from the period. “Before the Mast” performed at the Campbell Carriage Factory this past July, and were very well received, with strong interest in an encore performance. Their performance will also be interspersed with readings from very interesting letters of the era from some of the sea captains and their families, and other entertainment and
fun will be offered, including trivia. Tickets are $50, including a $25 charity receipt. There will be a cash bar.
The evening begins at 6 p.m. and will be held at the new Maritime Conference Building, 21 Wright St (just up from Coastal inn).Tickets are available at the Boultenhouse Heritage Centre, 29 Queen’s Rd. Tuesday to Friday from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. Seating is limited, and
tickets must be purchased in advance. Please visit www.heritage.tantramar.com or
contact 536-2541 for more information or to reserve tickets.
