Name of creator
The land for the Victoria Park at Grand Harbour, Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick was purchased in 1910. The land was purchased from Thomas J. Foster and his wife Elodie by the residents of School District #4, Grand Harbour for the use of the residents. Through the years the Grand Harbour Recreational Club and then the Grand Harbour Sports Council raised funds and improvements were made to the property. It has been used as a baseball field since the creation of the park. In 2002 the Park contained a swimming pool, swings, teeters, child's merry-go-round, and slide as well as the ball diamond with dug outs and bleachers. When the school district was abolished, the village of Grand Manan took over the management of the park.
Eileen Somers, daughter of Eugene Somers, secretary of Recreational Club, gave these papers to the Grand Manan Historical Society in 1989.
