Another winter has come and gone – and as for spring… does it even exist in Cape Breton? Well, summer time is quickly approaching and it is definitely the most wonderful time of the year for Destination Membertou because WE are going on vacation! Just kidding!
The Destination Membertou Summer Cruiser Program is back, with 2018 marking the program’s fifth year running. The students are back on July 3rd and we cannot wait! Our students will be taking over our social media accounts to provide updates on major events happening here in Membertou and also around the Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM.)
As always, students will promote and educate the public about the community of Membertou. It is going to be an adventurous and busy summer for the crew, as they will have lots planned. They will also be providing help with our community newsletter – writing the cover story and interviewing community members and employees for Teluisi profiles (Telusi means “my name is” in mi’kmaq).
We mentioned that 2018 marks the fifth year for the Destination Membertou Summer Cruiser Program and we’re thinking of planning something special for our community and for those who showed their support over the years. As the saying goes…time flies when you’re having fun!
We’re very excited to announce that we will be giving away brand new swag throughout the summer! This year, we will be giving out stickers, sunglasses, t-shirts and cellphone wallets. Even our elders enjoy our swag. Looking good Gloria and Pauline!
We are looking forward to working with our summer students, which we will be announcing in the coming weeks. Keep your eyes peeled (maybe with a pair of DM sunglasses) for more updates!
