Red River Heritage Fair
The annual Heritage Fair is taking place tomorrow at McIsaac School. One of the organizers Susanne Westhaver says students from Ruth Betts and McIsaac Schools develop projects on something that interests them about Manitoba history and the day is divided into four sections. She explains they will spend one of the sections in the gym presenting their projects to a judge and being adjudicated on that. They will spend two sections doing various workshops in areas that interest them so they have beading and bannock making, the Seven Teachings, the RCMP are going to do a session, they have a Metis culture and music session, CFAR Radio is doing a session, they have a session with hoop dancing and one on winter survival. She says in the last section of the day the students are in the gym with their projects to present to the rest of the school.
Westhaver adds from 4 to 5 the Heritage Fair is open to the public with awards presented at 5:30. The top 14 projects go on to the Red River Heritage Fair in Winnipeg on May 4th.
