Finding an opportunity to connect the past to the present is something Lester Marchand, Visitor Experience Manager at the Fortress of Louisbourg looks for in working with partners, to further enhance visitors’ experience. So in partnership with the Hospice Palliative Care Society, they hosted the first-ever Fortress Feast in September 2015. It was an interpretive and educational experience with a period meal and music, to raise funds for the Society. “Hospice Palliative Care was as important in the 18th century as it is today,” said Marchand. “Perhaps the means were different, but the process was the same.”
The 2nd annual Fortress Feast recently transpired on September 17, 2016. This year, there were 108 attendees that enjoyed the one-of-a-kind occassion in support of the Hospice Palliative Care Society. The Society would like to thank all who attended this memorable evening. A special thanks is also extended to this year’s event partners Parks Canada and the Fortress of Louisbourg Association. This event would not be possible without you!
