2012 Placentia Intertown Come Home Year Committee Invites Public Participation

From July 20th to July 29th, 2012, the Placentia Intertown Come Home Year Committee will be hosting a spectacular “Calendar of Events”, to welcome visitors from home and abroad to our region and to join us in a celebration of the richness of our multinational history over the past 500 years. Many European fishing vessels sailed into Placentia Bay since the 15th century, flying the flags of the international community - Basques, Spain, Portugal, France, Ireland, England and in the 20th century, the United States of America came to Argentia.

The Placentia Intertown Come Home Year Committee is inviting you to a Public Meeting on Monday, February 13th, 2012, at 7:30pm at the Placentia Bay Cultural Arts Center to share and to learn more about our community celebrations this summer. All interested person/s from Ship Harbour – Placentia and area – and out to Great Barrasway, are invited to attend this informative session.

To enhance the celebrations of our unique history, the committee is collecting Flags from every Community / Province /Country, please contact every member of your family who is living away and invite them to help out with this effort. All flags donated to the Come Home Year Committee will be on display during the 2012 Come Home Year Calendar of Events.
