If we're good enough for Queen Elizabeth II, then we're good enough for you!
That's what Herménégilde Chiasson, Lieutenant-Governor of New Brunswick, was looking for when choosing a gift for Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom. He wanted something historic - something with meaning. While celebrating the 200th anniversary of the settling of the Acadians, Chiasson selected a rock from historic St. Croix Island. But he couldn't just give the Queen a rock - he needed an appropriate package. What did he choose? One of our Shaker Oval Boxes.
