To Whom It May Concern:
Cupids Legacy Inc., is a registered charitable, not-for-profit organization whose mandate is to preserve, prominently display and effectively promote the history and heritage of Cupids and the Northern Avalon region from the early 17th century to the present.
The Cupids Legacy Centre was opened in 2010 as a legacy project of the Cupids 400 anniversary celebrations, which commemorated the establishment of the first English settlement and birthplace of English Canada by Governor John Guy (Cupids, 1610). The Centre is a state-of-the-art facility with an innovative and interactive museum, a family history
resource centre and archive, a multipurpose hall, a museum shop and an exterior viewing deck and faerie garden. A place “Where the Present Meets the Past,” the Legacy Centre showcases the heritage and culture that have defined our place in Canadian history.
As we are a not-for–profit organization that must provide for its own sustainability, we will host a number of fundraisers throughout the year – one of which is the 6th Annual Lobster Supper and Auction – which will take place on Saturday, June 15th, 2019, at the Cupids Legacy Centre. To assist us with our fundraising efforts, we would like to ask you to consider making a donation in the form of a product, service or monetary amount for this Annual event. Donations may be picked up or dropped off at the Legacy Centre by June 11th, 2019.
We thank you for your consideration and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Corrina Bartlett or myself at 528-1610.
Chair, Cupids Legacy Inc.

ANLA is holding a strategic planning session to help us determine directions for our organization’s future over the next five years. The session will take place on Saturday June 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Lantern, 35 Barnes Road, St. John’s.
Our previous experience with strategic plans has shown us that a strategic plan is a very effective means of ensuring that our organization stays focussed on its mandate and on the needs and objectives of its members. The last strategic plan, which covered the years between 2011 and 2015, was a great support to our organization, especially in the face of shifting funding opportunities. The object of this session is to consult members about the basics of a strategic plan for 2016-2020.
Some travel and accommodation support is available to ANLA members from outside St. John’s who wish to attend the session. Accommodation will be provided for the nights of June 16 and 17, which could also enable participants to attend ANLA’s AGM. Contact the ANLA office for further details.
Register for this event by contacting the ANLA office. Registration deadline is June 12, 2017.
If you are not able to attend this session but would still like to have input in the strategic planning process we would welcome your written submissions.
Please see your e-mail for a copy of the 2011-2015 strategic plan.
Plan to attend and be involved in shaping ANLA’s future activities!

The Canadian Committee on Archival Description (CCAD) of the Canadian Council of Archives has been contracted by Library and Archives Canada to develop a plan to update and revise the Rules for Archival Description (RAD). A national meeting of experts will be held during the winter of 2016 to discuss the path this revision should take. Before this meeting is held, provincial and territorial councils have been invited to host their own regional meetings to discuss their ideas about the future of RAD.
A backgrounder with key questions will be provided by CCAD to direct the discussions and provide feedback that will be shared during the national meeting. Background readings and other information will be available in advance to help participants prepare and contribute to the regional discussion.
ANLA will be facilitating a regional meeting about the future of RAD on November 20, 2015. The meeting will be hosted by The Rooms Provincial Archives Division and will take place in The Rooms Theatre. Participants can join us in person or via a distance communication technology (type to be determined).
Please RSVP to this invitation by November 10, letting us know whether you will be joining us in person or via distance technology.
