Oor Club Presents: Anne Moir in Afghanistan

February 3, 2017 @ 11:30 am2:00 pm

$5

Anne Moir is the immediate past-president of the St.Andrew’s Society of Toronto and has been invited to present an illustrated talk at Oor Club about the experiences she and her family had in Afghanistan, when her husband Frank headed a World Health Organization funded water-supply project for the City of Kabul for nearly three years from 1975-1978. Anne and Frank left for Afghanistan with two sons (aged 2 and 4) and returned with three. There will be stories ranging from interesting to exciting, including a personal account of the coup in 1978, and a view of the never dull ex-patriate life.

The cost to attend Oor Club is by way of a $5 donation to the Scottish Studies Foundation. Wide selections of pub lunches are available, typically costing between $5 and $15. The gathering begins at about 11.30 am and usually ends by about 2 pm. Everyone is welcome and pleased be assured that you do not have to be Scottish to attend!
