Today Peirce got to be part of a Heritage Fair. He did some interviewing of his grandparents to find out how some of his ancestors came to Alberta. He wrote about Frank and Justina Banman who came from Russia, about Anthon Marius Jensen who came from Denmark and Walter Ackroyd who came from England. Many of the other presentations were about other areas of interest in Alberta history. It was quite a lot of fun!
All of the kids were recognized for the work they did putting their presentations together.
They got to shake the hand of a colonel in WWII.
There were a lot of kids from Peirce's school there!
Even Mayor Nenshi came and checked things out. Peirce got to tell him about his research and Mayor Nenshi said he was very proud of Peirce and told him how his parents came to Alberta.
He was one proud boy!
Great job Peirce!
