Name of creator
In 1920, the York County Sunday School Association changed its name to the York County Religious Education Council. The Methodist, Presbyterian and Baptist churches created the Council to promote religious education in the county. It was a member of the Maritime Religious Education Council. The Council's activities included running a summer camp at Camp Wegesegum in Chipman; promoting world peace, particularly in the late 1930s; and promoting education about the natural environment and the prevention of forest fires.
