New Horizons met on Thursday, March 9th at the Maryhill Heritage Park Community Centre at 10:00 a.m.

Co –ordinator Joan Haid introduced guest speaker Jim Rodger, who is the co-ordinator of the Prime Minsters Statues and Education Resources Advisory Committee.

Jim spoke on “The Statue Project” and “The Prime Minister’s Path”. Their group are hoping eventually to have all 23 Prime Ministers completed and eventually will be placed around the grounds. He also spoke on the problems incurred finding a home for the statutes once they are completed. Castle Kilbride is now the proud new home of the Prime Ministers Statues.

Ruth Abernathy has completed Sir John A. MacDonald and is entitled “A Canadian Conversation”. He was unveiled in June 2016.

Each of these prime minister’s sculptors will have “Easter Eggs” incorporated. These are images or writings for the viewers to discover the history and life of that particular minister. All the statues are of bronze and will be life size.

Morgan MacDonald from St. John’s New Brunswick, Darren Byers & Fred Harrison from Sussex, New Brunswick, Alan Henderson from St. Albert, Alberta and Nathan Scott from Victoria, British Columbia are also sculptors who have been commissioned to do the various prime ministers.

The next New Horizons will be on Thursday, April 13th with guest speaker Scott Gallagher who is a certified Athletic Therapist and will speak on “Is Your Body Keeping up with You?”
