March 2015 Meeting - Harmony Centre

Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at 1:30 pm Harmony Centre, Owen Sound

In November, 2012, Owen Sound community members came together to preserve the beautiful and historic Knox United Church. The first section of the building was opened in 1873. It was enlarged in 1886. In 1908, another addition resulted in an education wing.

 It is now known as Harmony Centre Owen Sound and is home for arts education, performance and poverty alleviation efforts. Come and enjoy a tour of this special community jewel. Find out how a historic building has been turned into a valuable multi-purpose facility by a dedicated group of citizens. You will also hear about its architecture and its past history.

Coordinator: Susan Schank 519.376.7630

Location: 890 4th Ave. East, Owen Sound  -- Please enter by the 4th Avenue East entrance.

All are welcome to attend

Show and tell
Have you researched any of your family history? How have you compiled or shared your family tree, your family photos with your family? We invite you to bring examples to show. You will be given a few minutes to share a little of the family's history and to tell how you are sharing the information.

If you don't have have a family history done but have a family keepsake that you wish to show, bring that along with you. 

Many members of our Society are keenly interested in genealogy and family history. This is an opportunity to share your research, your family tree, your family photos and family stories with fellow Historical Society members and visitors. There will be lots of space for you to display your work.

This is also a chance to get ideas from others on what can be done. 

Come and enjoy a pot luck lunch followed by an interesting afternoon of sharing family history.
