MINUDIE - There was fun for everyone at the 12th annual Minudie Day on Sunday afternoon.

The event filled day featured wagon rides, face painting/tattoos, antique tractor and machinery displays, games, bake/craft tables and a barbecue, including a musical performance by the Uniacke Ramblers.

Minudie Day, which is hosted by the Minudie Heritage Association is a day to celebrate the community of Minudie and the surrounding areas and to give people an excuse to have a little fun, Helen Sims, the event co-ordinator said.

“It’s just a family event day and it’s a lot of fun.”

The reason behind the annual event is to promote the unique history of the community and the four provincial heritage buildings in the area, including the Amos Seaman School Museum and St. Denis Church, Sims said.

The day also represents a homecoming of sorts.

“A lot of people come home for the day to visit and some plan their vacation around it,” she said.

Sharon Gould, chair of the St. Denis Church Committee said an event like this is a way for friends, new and old, to reconnect to a place they once called home.

“We don’t want Minudie to become a forgotten place,” Gould said.

Merrill White, a resident of Minudie said he looks forward to this day each year.

“It’s great to see people come out and enjoy themselves on a day like today,” White said.

It’s no easy task organizing a popular event people have come to love, but the excitement that’s created is all worth it, Sims said.

“It’s a lot of work, but a lot of fun. The community really does support us and it’s nice to give back them and to have a day that we can all enjoy.”
