That's Fomidab!
Exciting new event! 
What’s with the name Fòmidab?
Fòmidab means Wonderful in Creole.
      Mollie and her daughter Sarah, both Creole, were among the 15 slaves that Rev. William King brought to Canada and set free in Buxton. A New York newspaper reporter raved about what a brilliant student Sarah was at the Buxton Mission School when she was 14 years old in 1852. So, we’re honouring Sarah and her Mom Mollie for being pretty wonderful!
