"They’re havin’ a time” was an expression that stirred excitement and expectation among the people of Placentia West in Newfoundland. The custom of “havin’ a time” was often connected to special dates or milestone events, although its key purpose was bringing everyone together to celebrate the life they shared as a community. And when the time was over, it would become a community memory told and retold, for “what a time it was”. In this exhibit, we’re “havin’ a time,” and you’re invited to join us!
