Welcome to the new site of Moncton’s Permanent Settlers Association
Celebrating 250 years of arrival and progress in Moncton
Please join us for this “once in our lifetime” opportunity to celebrate Moncton’s early beginnings. We are thrilled to invite you to come join us during the year 2016 as we celebrate this momentous occasion.
The Permanent Settlers Association honors the eight families, with such familiar names as: Copple, Jones, Lutes/Lutz, Ricker, Somers, Steeves, Trites and Wortman, who ventured to Canada in response to the promise of land grants to settle the Township of Monckton on June 3, 1766.
The wonderful re-enactment of the Landing on Friday, June 3, 2016, was followed by a reception at Moncton City Hall and a dinner in the evening at the Delta, Beausejour Hotel. This is the link to the video of the event at Settler’s Landing for those of you who were fortunate to attend and for those that couldn’t be there in person.
