The Charlotte County Archives, located in St. Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada began in 1975 when a group of volunteers known as the “Friends of the Charlotte County Historical Society” was formed to preserve and organize historical documents relating to Charlotte County. Since 1982 the permanent home of the Archives has been at 123 Frederick Street in the old Charlotte County Gaol, a Provincial Heritage Site, generously provided by the Province of New Brunswick. The Archives is a non-profit organization and donations help fund daily operations and special projects.

World Premiere of Exciting Hockey Film for St. Andrews N.B.

Don’t miss an exciting film at 3:00 pm on Saturday, April 28 at the W.C. O’Neill Arena in St. Andrews. Franklin Cardy, Board Chair of the Charlotte County Archives, has created the film entitled “Hockey in St. Andrews 1900-1980” based on the films of the late W.C. “Bill” O’Neill. Bill played a leading role in the building of the Town’s facilities and it is after him that the Arena was named. He began taking films capturing hockey in this Town as early as 1938. His niece, Carmelita Thompson O’Neill, had the films digitized and gave a copy to Franklin to compile. Teddy Rooney’s movies have also been used in the creation of Saturday’s debut film.

The film, which is one hour in length, shows rarely-seen footage from Saint Andrews history and the families who played a part in creating the strong tradition of hockey in St Andrews.

Franklin Cardy hopes that people will see many familiar faces and will remember the legacy of hockey through this. He also hopes to raise awareness for the Charlotte County Archives, the “guardians of the memory of Charlotte County.” Come out to see the film and join the Archives at the same time. To be a member of the Archives the cost is only $25 per person or $35 per family for the year. With a newly-purchased 2018 membership, you will be given free admission to the film, which has a ticket price of $10.
