Bon Ami Rocks

#81996D (2).png

This volcanic formation represents a lava flow deposited during the Devonian period, nearly 400 million years ago. It is named for Peter Bonamy, who is considered to be Dalhousie’s first European settler. He moved to the point in 1787 and, a year later, applied for a grant of land. At first, the entire area, including both this and Inch Arran Point, was referred to in government documents as "Bonamy’s Point."

A natural rock formation, "the Arch Rock", carved by the tides and once called the "Gate of Fossil Cove", is a photographer’s dream. The beach area surrounding Arch Rock is greatly prized by geologists, locals, and tourists.On the edge of the rock, an outline of a face can be seen facing the Eel River Bar First Nations Reserve. On top of the rock was a single tree that was said to represent a feather, for legend has it that the Indian chief from the reserve proclaimed that when he died he would return to watch over his people. When he died, it is believed that he was reincarnated on the side of the arch rock overlooking the Native Reserve. Over the years, erosion has torn away at the rock, but to this day, the Indian chief remains watchful over his people.

During the age of sail, Polaris, the North Star, was the beacon by which ships in the northern hemispheres could determine their latitude. At 48.03.30N, Dalhousie is the most northern point in New Brunswick and has a rich past in shipbuilding and sailing. This ship, Polaris, is dedicated to our historic past and, as in the age of sail, is a beacon for the future of our waterfront community where the Restigouche River meets the Bay of Chaleur.

A non-profit organization, Jeunesses Musicales Canada (JMC), has a dual mission: to promote the performance of classical music, especially for young audiences, and to help young professional instrumentalists, singers, and composers develop their careers at the national and international levels. JMC’s contribution to the Canadian music scene is immense. Thanks to a network of several hundred volunteers that hosts its touring productions, JMC became one of the first organizations to present professional-caliber concerts in outlying regions far from major urban centers. In so doing, since its inception, JMC has presented tens of thousands of concerts to young audiences, families, and the general public from coast to coast across Canada. Since its foundation, JM Canada has organized concert tours for most of Canada’s leading young artists, including well-known names such as Joseph Rouleau, Maureen Forrester, Marek Jablonski, the Orford Quartet, Louis Quilico, James Campbell, André Moisan, Aline Kutan, James Ehnes, Marie-Nicole Lemieux, and many others.
