Reminder: Catherine Hennessey to present this Saturday, Jan. 24th, 1:30 p.m.

Screen Shot 2015-01-19 at 3.24.21 PMSaturday, January 24th, 1:30 p.m. – Catherine Hennessey – “Samuel Holland, Lord Selkirk and the Farmers of Lot 31″

2015 marks 250 years since Samuel Holland surveyed Prince Edward Island. Catherine will talk about the important contribution that Holland made to our Island, how Lord Selkirk came to own land in Lot 31 and the struggles local farmers had with distant landlords.

For readers of The Guardian, you may have noticed the story last week where Catherine has published a new book, Prince Edward Island Pottery Company. We asked her to take along some books to sell, so this will be your chance to pick up a signed copy. The books are $15.

Refreshments will be served.

As an additional note, if any of you have found more heritage photos since our previous events, please take them along and we will plan to scan them on Saturday as well.

“Capturing Collective Memories from Seniors” events are made possible with funding from New Horizons for Seniors Program, Government of Canada.
