Two Successful Talks So Far in 2016

2016 has been a great year so far!

In April, the Foundation hosted author and historian Ted Barris, who presented a talk entitled Fire Canoe: How Canada Became a Nation From Coast to Coast. Snapd was there and captured some great shots.

Then on June 1, Lori Oschefski came to talk about the British Home Children. Many in the crowd had questions for Lori and stories to share about their own Home Child ancestors. Once again, Snapd was on hand to document the evening in photos. The image below was taken by Dan Philips, one of the attendees.
