OCTOBER 2014
(DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS TO OUR NOVEMBER ISSUE: WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 22)
Our thanks this month goes to Debbie Carr of Storeytown for sending us the above photograph of a beautiful autumn
morning here in the Miramichi River Valley. If you have a picture taken in the Upper Miramichi Area that you would like us
to consider using in this “place of honor” in a future issue, just send it along to [email protected]
Please note that “horizontal” photos – rather than “vertical” ones -- work best for us.
WASN’T THAT A PARTY??!!!
On Saturday, September 6,
the Central Miramichi Historical Society, with its partner the Atlantic
Salmon Museum, hosted a party to officially “launch” its new book,
160 Years of Salmon Stories (The Atlantic Salmon Museum’s Hall of
Fame) . . . and what a celebration it was. By the end of an all-tooshort afternoon, almost 200 guests had come to congratulate author
Morris Green, to listen to some rib-tickling stories, and to delight in a
book that is sure to become a mainstay in many homes up and down
the Miramichi and beyond. It was truly a joyous occasion but for
those of you who just couldn’t make it, please take note of the
following:
Until Sunday, September 28, 160 Years
of Salmon Stories will be available for
sale at the Atlantic Salmon Museum (263
Main Street, Doaktown), Monday –
Saturday (9:00 am – 5:00 pm) and
Sunday (Noon – 5:00 pm). After Sunday,

for the season, you may leave a voice
mail at the Museum by calling 365-7787
or you may send your request by email
to

obtained by contacting one of the following members of the Central
Miramichi Historical Society: Valerie O’Donnell (365-7924); Ann Storey (365-4529); Karen Swim (365-1105) or

All profits from the sale of this book go directly to the Atlantic Salmon Museum.
160 Years of Salmon Stories Book Launch
W. R. (“Bill”) MacKinnon receives a specially-autographed
copy of 160 Years from Historical Society President Valerie
O’Donnell. The MacKinnon Family played a vital role in this
project and it is with gratitude that the book is
dedicated to them.
Ann Storey presents Peggy Green with a bouquet as a small token
of appreciation on behalf of the Society for the many hours she too
has dedicated to this project.
The “house” was packed – standing room only!
Taking a quick peek at the book before the formalities
begin.
The Central Miramichi Historical Society would like to express our very sincere appreciation to
representatives of the Atlantic Salmon Museum (Delmer White, Hannah Johnston and Daphne
Nippard); to the men who courageously unloaded the books – all 2,000 of them (Terry Clowater,
Bev Gaston, Barry Storey and Washburn Storey); to our “Parking Valet” Donald Colford; to our photogr aphers Stephanie
O’Donnell and Michele Gilks; to Tina Green, Michael Schofield and Cheryl McDonald for “pitching in;” and to Graeme
MacKinnon for his support and advice. Without your enthusiasm and willingness to help, this event could not have gone so
smoothly or been the very happy success it was. Thanks to you all!

2014 TERRY FOX WALK
On Sunday, September 14 th , our small, but mighty
community came together to participate in the annual
Terry Fox Walk. This year we had 85 participants and
volunteers, and together we raised almost $3,100.00.
The event could not have happened without the
businesses and volunteers who gave their support.
A huge “thanks” to the following businesses for your
donations:
Doaktown Auto Supplies; The Ledges Inn; The Village
Family Restaurant; Becky O’Donnell; Brittany Betts; the
Atlantic Salmon Museum; Doaktown Pharmasave;
Naturally Fit Doaktown; the Village of Doaktown; Old Mill
Pond Golf Club; the Great Canadian Dollar Store; the
Doaktown Save-Easy; Irving Gas Bar; Stewart’s Garage;
Irving Mill (Philip Munn); River Rock Spa; Storeybrook

Also a heartfelt “thanks” to the following individuals:
Gilbert Thibodeau, Johanne Munn and Sonya O’DonnellMunn for collecting prizes
Leota Brown, Lia Munn, Ava St. Laurent, and Kyle Munn
for selling 50/50 squares
Trevor Price: Donation of prizes, water, ice-cream
sandwiches, as well as the use of the Doaktown
Save-Easy for the sale of 50/50 squares (and knowing
what I needed before I even asked ☺)
Karen Swim and Joseph Price for bringing along “Katy
the Kubota”
Johanne Munn,
Sonya O’Donnell-Munn,
Bonnie
Robinson, Elaine Colford, Dianne Lyons, Meta Ward,
Marci Spencer, Albert and Theresa Sturgeon, Deven and
Kyle Munn, and Bryson Beek for volunteering at the
school on the day of the Walk
Like most “Thank-You” shout outs, someone may get
left out. If I have omitted anyone, PLEASE forgive me
and know that I appreciated all the help and couldn’t
have done it without you.
I am already thinking ahead to next year, and hope to
see a bigger turn out and to reach or surpass the
$3,100.00 raised this year.
It’s never too early to start planning, collecting pledges
or volunteering time or donations.
Thank you to Mayor Bev Gaston for his opening
remarks, as well as to all Terry’s Team Members (shown
in the photo above) for sharing in this day with us.

MIRAMICHI VALLEY
BUSINESS ASSOCIATION
The Miramichi Valley Business Association is pleased to announce that it
has entered into a partnership with TransCanada Pipelines with a view to
promoting the project known as Energy East throughout the communities
in the Miramichi Valley.
Fully supported by the municipal councils of
Blackville, Doaktown the RCUM and Stanley, the Association will serve as
a liaison between project representatives and the communities the MVBA
represents, ensuring that local businesses and residents receive timely
and accurate information and that potential benefits are optimized.
It is our belief that the formation of this partnership and the promotion of
the Energy East project will lead to new business opportunities and job
creation in this area. As part of this new initiative, an Open House will be
held on Wednesday, October 29 at the Upper Miramichi Lions Club.
If you are interested in joining the Association and receiving
first-hand information about Energy East, please contact our

and united call for economic development and job creation for the
businesses and residents of the Miramichi Valley Area.
TransCanada is in the planning stages of a
project to transport oil from the Western
Provinces to Eastern Canada. Known as
Energy East, this ini/a/ve will generate
significant economic benefits for the
Province of New Brunswick as well as create
direct and indirect job opportuni/es for a
significant number of workers and local
businesses.

In Loving Memory of
SHAUN HOVEY
March 18, 1979 – October 1, 2013
A limb has fallen from the family tree;
I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song,
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest;
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life; don’t worry about falls.
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin
Until the day comes we’re together again.”
~ Sadly missed by Bonnie, Everard, Rodney and Shannon
In Memory of
SHAUN MELVIN HOVEY
Who Passed Away on October 1, 2013
You had a heart of gold,
Generous, loving and kind.
Dearest nephew and cousin -These are the memories
In our hearts you left behind.
~ Sadly missed by Cindy & John,
Rachel & Tyler, and the Boys

IN MEMORY OF
SHAUN HOVEY
It’s been a year since you passed
away, and there hasn’t been a
day, an hour or not many
minutes that I didn’t think of you. Your passing has
left an ache in my heart but I’m glad that I have tons
of memories of y ou. Life really doesn’t seem fair
when you passed so young. I will never forget you,
Shaun – you are truly, sadly, deeply missed.
~ Love from your brother Andy
