The event will include presentations on the two subjects being recognized in 2019:

1) Anna Templeton who was a pioneer in the province's cottage craft industry (under Exceptional People from the Past category).

2) Red Indian Lake is noteworthy as one of the last major areas of settlement for the Beothuk before their extinction and as a place of subsequent lumbering and mining (under Unique Places category).
