"Lighting the Way: The Story of Summerside Electric

1920 -2020" is available for purchase!


For the past year and a half, the staff of Culture Summerside have been engaged in putting into print the 100-year history of Summerside Electric, the municipal utility that serves 11 percent of Prince Edward Island’s electric customers.


The book tells the amazing story of how the 1920 Summerside Town Council purchased a rundown private electric company and turned it into a municipal asset that has proven of great benefit to the community for over 100 years. 


Lighting the Way: The Story of Summerside Electric 1920 – 2020, is available for purchase at the Lefurgey Cultural Centre (205 Prince Street) Monday to Friday. It is also available for purchase at Summerside City Hall and Coles at the County Fair Mall in Summerside. The book is for sale in Charlottetown at The Bookmark and Indigo.

Sixty Days of Fame Exhibit

"Beyond Boundaries"

Artist Angele Arsenault

Beyond Boundaries is the title of Angele Arsenault‘s first exhibit being featured in the Sixty Days of Fame series at the Lefurgey Cultural Centre during April and May.

For as long as she can remember, the Wellington mixed media artist has been attracted to colour as it is captured in all things. She is especially drawn to colour in paper, markers, ink, paint, and flowers. Every available inch of space on the grounds of her home are filled with colourful flowers, shrubs, and trees from which she draws inspiration for her art.


At first, her artistic creativity was satisfied with creating beautiful cards. Then she discovered a whole new world of art tutorials and materials online. This filled her with the curiosity to explore endless possibilities of creating with colors, shapes, and textures with numerous different mediums. It proved an opportunity to use her imagination to create unique and interesting pieces of art.


Beyond Boundaries can be viewed free of charge at the Lefurgey Cultural Centre, 205 Prince Street in Summerside, Monday through Friday, 9 am to 4:30 pm from April 1st through to May 31st.


Angele is excited to host an opening on Thursday,
April 7th from 7 pm to 8:30 pm.

We look forward to your visit!
