Thursday, September 25, 2014: Presentation by Ian Brindle: “Brock University: The Beginnings” – A deeply researched look at how Brock University came to be and the first years of its existence.  This is Brock’s 50th anniversary year so this talk is very well timed.

Thursday, November 27, 2014: Show and Tell and Christmas Social.  Members will bring their artifacts, old photos and collectibles and spend up to 5 minutes telling us about them.

There will be no meetings in December.
