Annual General Meeting 2017
February 23 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Come for 7:30pm, get comfortable and grab a dram; the meeting will start at 8:00pm.
This year our guest speaker will be Peter Wilson from Fifth Line Press. Peter will speak to us about a topic that will excite history lovers: The Historical Atlas of the County of York.
This exciting project will improve the familiar Historical Atlas of the County of York, filling gaps in the historical record between the first edition of 1878 and today.
The atlas of 1878 was a history of the day – those portrayed on its pages were citizens, businesses and events current in their day. Much has transpired since 1878 and you are a great part of that story!
Their request is important: help them make history.
These atlases were “patronized” – those represented purchased the pages to show their homes, businesses, farms and families – to be part of the historical record. Elected officials, landmark buildings, important institutions, proud farmers and prominent people; their portraits, prosperous lands and grand homes, all preserved for future generations.
For those who missed the opportunity in 1878, we are re-patronizing the atlas – offering you a chance to make history.
By putting you, your family or your business in this Historical Atlas of the County of York you get to tell a great story and improve the historical record for future generations.
Take your place in the atlas – be remembered.
