Glenwood residents trace Micmac origins as Celebration project.
Glenwood (Special) - This town, located on the Gander River, had its origins as a Micmac Indian settlement and its residents have set a Confederation Celebration project of tracing their heritage. Malcolm Squires, a town councillor, heads a three member committee in handling the study. Descendants of the Micmac founders of the town have undertaken to prepare displays of old handicrafts, tools and weapons, while others are concentrating on other areas of the project. The efforts of all concerned will be brought together in a Celebration of Glenwood Day with emphasis on the 25th anniversary of Confederation and the much older heritage of the town. Tourism minister Tom Doyle has lauded the project as an exciting example of the spirit of Confederation Celebrations.
