As Canada’s first incorporated city (est 1785), Saint John has been welcoming people from eastern Europe, the United Kingdom and Ireland for 400 years. Long before their arrival, the are was well known to the Mi’kmaq and Maliseet aboriginal inhabitants. Each group of immigrants has left an indelible imprint on Saint John history through its culture, architecture and people.
Saint John 225 is the official anniversary celebrations of the City of Saint John and its incorporation as Canada's original city. Saint John was incorporated on May 18, 1785 and in 2010 we're heading into our neighbourhoods to celebrate our city. This is the year Saint John tells its story: the stories of the people, events and places that have shaped Saint John.

Peter Murray was a well-known Saint John and New Brunswick sportsman and was inducted into the Saint John Sports Hall of Fame three times: on May 12, 1993, May 10, 1995 and in May of 1997. From the time he first burst upon the local sporting scene as a Little League baseball player in 1953, “Big” Peter Murray has been a dominant figure in Saint John sports, as a participant and as a leader. He shone in many sports, but excelled in five that took him to national competition time and time again. As a curler, Peter skipped his championship New Brunswick team at the brier in 1978 and to more national events, skipping a mixed team in 1980 and 1982. He also had given great organizational talents to serve in executive positions with Thistle-St. Andrews Curling Club, the 1985 Canada Summer Games, the Saint John hosting of the Canadian Softball Tournament, the New Brunswick Amateur Hockey Association, the first C.F.L. Exhibition Game ever played in Saint John, was a member of the Selection Committee of the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame and served as a former President of the Lancaster Kiwanis Club and was an honourary member of the Saint John Firefighters, Local 771. If any curler is looking for a role model and athlete to emulate, Peter Murray is a great choice!
