Letter to the Editor: Tales of the Seaway December 1st

To the Editor:

On December 1st, the Historical Society of South Dundas in collaboration with the St. Lawrence Branch of the United Empire Loyalist’s Association of Canada are hosting the first annual Tales of the Seaway at the Iroquois Civic Centre from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.

A number of local citizens will have historic and family history displays as well as our HSSD materials.

Everyone is encouraged to come out and visit the displays, enjoy refreshments and rich conversation.

Individuals who wish can bring memories and share them with the large group or with individual members of HSSD.

South Dundas continues to be one of the hidden gems of Eastern Ontario.

It has a rich history waiting to be uncovered and shared and is the home to many firsts and many important people who were instrumental in developing the province of Ontario.

The citizens of South Dundas will get a chance to share their rich heritage at this event on Dec. 1st.

The Historical Society of South Dundas has been actively collecting pictures and other memorabilia since October 2018.

We will share the stories of our region, and celebrate the uniqueness of the beginnings of each of our hamlets, towns and villages and how they contributed to the development of South Dundas.
A remarkable amount of material has been shared with HSSD which helps us achieve our goal of telling stories about people, families, and events of our region.

Many families do not want to give away treasured family heirlooms, so we will gladly copy what is offered and return the originals to the owners.

Lastly, this Fall HSSD published a first ever 2020 calendar entitled Memories of South Dundas which contains many pictures of places and people around South Dundas.

It is available for purchase in local businesses and of course, will be available at Tales of the Seaway.

Please come out and join us on Dec. 1st and share with us.

Respectfully,

Anne Presley
President of HSSD
