MONTREAL, July 29 /CNW Telbec/ - The Stewart Museum will celebrate in a
very special way the origins of Québec, cradle of the French presence in
America, during a Soirée to be held September 18th, in the historic courtyard
of the Fort on Ile Sainte-Hélène.
Under the patronage of Mr. Gérald Tremblay, Mayor of Montréal, the Soirée
will be graced by the presence of numerous guests representing various
territories that were part of Nouvelle France. Displays, music, dance, and
fine dining of the period will highlight the festive atmosphere.
The Museum, whose mission includes the education of its public,
especially youth, is particularly compelled by the celebrations of the arrival
of the early settlers. The Stewart Museum's fascinating collection features
unique artefacts - rare maps, antique arms, scientific instruments and
navigational tools, domestic utensils and historical documents.
Proceeds from the event will help further develop the Museum's
educational mission and broaden its programs benefiting students of the
Greater Montreal area.
