Upcoming General Membership Meetings
Monthly Membership Meetings are held at Betty's Restaurant in Chippawa the first Saturday of the month - February, March, April, May, September, October, November and December at 11:45. Our meetings begin with lunch and end with an interesting speaker.
Saturday, March 3, 2018. Sandra McNamara: The Declaration of Dependence 1776.
Yes, you are reading it correctly. Sandra will talk about the Declaration of Dependence, not the Declaration of Independence. This relatively unknown document was signed by 547 persons who wished to express their loyalty to the Crown. That is 491 more signatures than were on the Declaration of Independence.
Saturday, April 7, 2018. Ann Augustine McKibbon: A Canadian Nurse in the U.S. Army 1917-1919 in France, the Memoirs of Blanche Augustine Hock.
Blanche Augustine was a woman from Wainfleet Township who served as nurse in World War I. She kept a diary of her experiences. Now in the hands of her great-niece, Ann Augustine McKibbon, the diary is a glimpse into the world that Blanche saw, felt and lived at an army hospital near the front in war torn France.
Saturday, May 5, 2018. Lori Oschefski: British Home Children, Canada’s Little Pioneers.
Between 1869 and the late 1930s 100,000 children were sent from the British Isles to Canada. They were a source of cheap labour. Some thrived in Canada, but many were badly mistreated. Lori Oschefski is a descendant of several British Home children and has done extensive research into this little known part of Canada’s history.
Meetings are open to anyone interested. If you would like to attend one of our meetings, please send us an email by using the Contact Us form.
