Mountsberg Day!

Sunday July 5th is Mountsberg Day at Westfield
The Mountsberg Methodist Church was built by Charles Mount in 1854.  Now preserved at Westfield, this beautiful historic building will be the focus of a special day commemorating the Mountsberg community.  The day will begin with a special service in the church at 10:00 am.  Friends, neighbours and former residents of Mountsberg, as well as any descendants of the early settlers, will be there.  All are welcome.  Those attending the service are urged to bring a picnic lunch and stay for the day at no charge, enjoying all that the village has to offer.  A free will offering will be taken up during the service, and this will be donated to the Mountsberg Cemetery Committee, a group raising much needed funds for the restoration and beautification of this historic cemetery.

The afternoon will feature opportunities to share memories of life in early Mountsberg.  You can also join in an old fashioned hymn sing, take in a fashion show featuring costumes from the late 1800s and early 1900s and enjoy a Sunday school picnic, with traditional games for the children.  A selection of Mountsberg memorabilia will be on display also.  Throughout the afternoon, a range of interesting historical activities and demonstrations will be presented by the volunteers of Westfield Heritage Village.

Mountsberg Day will take place on Sunday July 5, 2015.  A special church service at the historic Mountsberg Church will begin at 10:00 am.  The village will be open for a public program from 12:30 – 4:00 pm.  Regular admission rates apply for the afternoon program for those not attending the morning service.
