History & heritage



Youth & teens

For the month of September, visit the Glace Bay Library for a free Polish "Imieniny" (Name Card) greeting card (while supplies last) - and learn more about how you can extend greetings to a friend on their "Name Day". In Polish tradition, it's very common to celebrate your "name day" with cards, small gifts & best wishes. Name days are also easier to remember then birthdays! To find your name day, please go to the page of Cape Breton's St. Mary's Polish Parish: Look for the Polish name that most closely resembles your name. If that name appears more than once, yours is the first one after your birthday!
