Museum Receives Top Award

The Award of Merit recognizes significant contributions to the practice of museum and heritage work in Newfoundland and Labrador. It is awarded to an organization, agency, or individual for an outstanding, innovative or creative achievement in the museum, gallery or heritage field, or in any area related to the preservation and development of the provinces cultural heritage, including research, collection, documentation, exhibition, public programming and management.

This could not have been possible without the fantastic and talented committee who are dedicated to preserve, interpret, and promote the 223 year history of The Royal Newfoundland Regiment. We are grateful for the financial support of our patrons, especially Susan Patten of the Harvey Family Foundation whose funding has been key to our success. Elinor Gill-Ratcliffe also has supported us generously.
We will continue to work hard and lead the way, that we hope, will make every member, former member, and the public of Newfoundland and Labrador proud of “OURS!” — The Royal Newfoundland Regiment!
