NEW FOR 2017!!!
St. Paul, Centennial Star
In 1967, Canada celebrated its 100th birthday. Of all the communities in Canada, St. Paul was the only one to celebrate by doing 100 projects. Funds were raised for important causes, and everyone worked together to make the year something incredible. Visit our display honoring the Centennial Fever that gripped the town, and gave our community the title of Centennial Star!
Mother Teresa's Visit
Mother Teresa visited the town of St. Paul in 1982, to collect a cheque for money raised to support her [projects in India. Our small community managed to raise nearly $1 million! The community spirit and generosity of the people is chronicled in a collection of newspaper articles and photographs from the collections of those involved.
NOW AVAILABLE! SEARCHABLE PDF FILES OF ST. PAUL NEWSPAPERS, 1920 TO 1983!
View these files for 6 months with a $10 membership fee. Please see information under MEMBERSHIP tab above for procedure to obtain access. (Please note: These PDFs were obtained from microfiche. The older newspapers were in poorer quality when photographed, making the 'search' function less precise. Larger headings are more easily searchable for papers from the 1920s and 1930s).
