Update December 2014

The Cobourg and District Historical Society’s third annual Trivia Night was a great success! Encouraged by better weather than the blizzard of last year’s Trivia Night, a capacity crowd at the Legion Village Pub consumed copious quantities of potato chips while vying to display their knowledge of Canadian trivia. Prior to the questions there was a table of history related books for sale at bargain prices. Later in the evening Leona served her home-baked cookies and welcome coffees.
