Goss and Wright have more than a century of historic service in the community. They have been involved in wide range of heritage promotion activities.  Both have been honoured for their efforts by the American Association for State and of Local History and the City of Saint John Heritage Award.  Between them have written over 30 books reflecting on the story of Saint John.  Some of the books will be part of a display of Heritage themed books held by the Saint John Free Public Library at the storefront which can be borrowed by card holders just up the pedway to the library’s circulation desk.

This program is intended to be a fill in for the popular Heritage Fair which was always held on February in the Market Square Atrium, but which the organizers felt would not be possible to do under present conditions.
