REF NO.: 163

SUBJECT: ACE Memorial officially re-opens Moulder of Dreams

DATE: April 22

Note to editors:
 
            On Thursday, April 24, ACE Memorial will officially re-open Moulder of Dreams, a pottery studio in Port Hope Simpson, Labrador, that provides employment and physical therapy for members of the community who have Myotonic Dystrophy.
            The studio closed in 2005 due to sustainability issues. For over two years, ACE Memorial has worked with all levels of government and ACOA to re-open the studio.
            The official re-opening will take place on Thursday, April 24, at 1 p.m. in the Port Hope Simpson Town Hall.
            ACE Memorial, three time national champions and runners up in the Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) World Cup, is a student group dedicated to finding entrepreneurial solutions to social issues in Newfoundland and Labrador. Moulder of Dreams is the most ambitious project to date and has resulted in government investment and eight new jobs in Port Hope Simpson, Labrador.
            Media are welcome to attend the re-opening ceremony.
