The Placentia Area Historical Society (PAHS) is partnering with the Atlantic Charter Foundation of Ship Harbour to assist with the celebration of the 75 Anniversary of the Atlantic Charter in 2016. The Atlantic Charter Foundation Inc. (ACF) is made up of a local Board of Directors and an advisory committee of people from mainland Canada and Newfoundland and Labrador. Honorary Patron is His Honour Frank F. Fagan, CM ONL Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador. Tom O’Keefe, president of PAHS is acting as an advisor to the Board of Directors.
In order to prepare for the celebrations the Board of Directors was recently reorganized with Nicole Walsh becoming the chairperson. Tony Meade is vice-chair, Debbie Meade is secretary and Anita Murray is treasurer. The group has indicated it will be seeking the help of many volunteers during the celebrations next summer.
