The Micmacs of Gesgapegiag Economic Development and Lands Department is excited to announce we have been approved for a $10,000.00 grant through Veterans Canada. The funds will be used for our Gesgapegiag Veterans exhibit in our Interpretation Center connected to the church. We will be receiving original medallions of one of our own most highly decorated soldiers, Frank Narcisse Jerome, as well as creating several plaques to honour historical Veterans from Gesgapegiag. This will be part of Phase 1 in the development of this center and many more to come. Economic Development and Lands have been working towards this project for some time and are happy to announce that we will have an exhibit to present to the community in the months to come. Stay tuned!
