The History Group welcomes history buffs. An interesting array of guest speakers is planned for Sept. 2021 to May, 2022. Please see below the tentative Program.
We will meet on the Third Wed. of the month between 10am and Noon. Due to the impending 4th wave of the pandemic, we will meet via ZOOM for the Fall session at least.
Members have agreed to help in the costs of purchasing Thank you gifts for the guest speakers, which will be given to charities of choice. Members will forward a cheque of $25.00 ($3.00 per meeting) to participate in the lectures.
Please contact the Convenor for further details.
