The official unveiling of the outdoor course “The Superpowers of the Onondaga” will be in early May (so we'll keep it a secret until then, right?), but if you're too curious to wait you can take a look at this post (in french). The course will be open from June 10 until the end of the season!
In the meantime, a new historical website dedicated to Site historique maritime de la Pointe-au-Père's (SHMP) photo and video archives of the submarine Onondaga is online - onondaga.ca - where you can find a wealth of information on the ship's military career, its installation onsite at Pointe-au-Père and a series of testimonials from the ship's retired submariners!
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the partnership between Parks Canada and (SHMP)! On June 26, 1982, Parks Canada and SHMP signed an agreement to open the Pointe-au-Père Lighthouse National Historic Site to the public and provide interpretation. An evening event will be held on July 13th during the 7th edition of Lighthouse Day (that too is top secret!) The event will be open to the public and video capsules will be posted on social networks in May to generate interest.
The Pointe-au-Père lighthouse is officially reopening its... steps after two years of closure due to you-know-what. The SHMP team is looking forward to welcoming back its visitors who are eager to climb the 2nd highest lighthouse in the country!
As for the Empress of Ireland Museum, the show “The Last Voyage” can once again be watched during the visit and the anniversary of the shipwreck of the night of 28-29 May will be marked by a visit from historian David Saint-Pierre who has acquired a magnificent album of period photos.
