May Meeting: History of the Murray Canal

Join us as we drive/carpool our way to Brighton, Ontario’s Owen Gibb Community Hall on Tuesday, May 28, to hear Brighton resident and historian Dan Buchanan, The History Guy, present the history of the Murray Canal which is a part of the Trent-Severn waterway.

It is a story that is both complex and compelling.

The presentation will begin at 10:30am at The Owen Gibb Community Hall, King Edward Park Complex, 75 Elizabeth Street in Brighton. Copies of Dan’s latest book – A History of the Murray Canal – will be available for purchase.

Following the presentation, we will meet for lunch at the Whistling Duck in Brighton (separate cheques!).

Please confirm your attendance by either an email to Brian Murphy (brianincobourg@gmail.com) or by phone to Carla Jones (289-252-1684).

Let us know if you need a ride.

We look forward to hearing Dan’s presentation and to having time to socialize after the presentation. We cannot provide the usual coffee and cookies but there is a nearby Tim Hortons. Please join us!
