The community of Clyde River received a PEI Heritage Award for The History and Stories of Clyde River at the annual awards ceremony held yesterday at Eptek Centre in Summerside which kicked off PEI Heritage Week.

The Clyde River History Committee was in attendance to accept the award from Museum and Heritage Prince Edward Island.

The following is the citation that accompanied this heritage award presented to Clyde River:

“Never forget those you come from.” This advice in both Gaelic and English is featured on the sign for the Clyde River Pioneer Cemetery, the cover of The History and Stories of Clyde River and again in this dedication. It is the spirit that infuses this classic community history. A blend of memories, stories, “hard” history and genealogy, our history ranges from the earliest days of settlement to modern times, all the while celebrating those who built and continue to build the community.

In recognition for their work in creating this community history, we, the Heritage Awards Committee on behalf of the Board of Directors, are pleased to present a Heritage Activity Award to the Clyde River History Committee.

Here is a scan of the certificate that was received:
