DECEMBER 8, 2016

The annual xmas dinner was held at Mill Tales Inn and praised by all in attendance.


This year's receipient of the Local Hero Award went to Mr. Frank Moore:



Justin explained that "it is my great honour to present this award to Frank Moore for his continued dedication to the preservation of Remembrance, for the multiple events he has planned for the public over the years, especially his recent event concerning the Ten Boer suitcase that was presented at the Legion November 11th dinner, and for guarding the memories of those who died in all wars"

Frank's name will be added to the TMHC Local Hero Plaque which is displayed in the Tillsonburg Community Centre joining the growing list of "Local Heros" we have honoured in the past "

Robin chaired the meeting.

1.       Xmas dinner for the TMHC will be December 11 at Chrissy‚Äôs Catering on Brock Street.  I will print up some tickets for the next meeting.

2.       2. The Speaker for the November 11 meeting at the Legion will be Rev. Paul Robinson.  Contact me if you wish to purchase a ticket or two at a cost of $15 each.  Our club usually sits together at a table or two in the North West corner if you have a problem finding us.

3.       Robin will be having a store front display on Main Street, Delhi for their local Legion from Nov. 4 to the 10th if you will be in the neighbourhood. 

4.       We require display items for the TMHC at the Mall from Nov 4 to the 10th.  Suggested items could be models, posters, photos, albums, picture books, small inexpensive artefacts.  You would be leaving them at your own risk so consider how precious the item is to you.  We are trying to have a club member at the display but there are occasions when no one will be on duty.  I have a schedule if you find yourself with some free time.

5.       We will also have a small display at the Mormon Church on Saturday Nov 8 to compliment their Family History exhibit and seminars.

6.       We will also have a display at the Station Arts Centre from Nov 4 to the 10th which will mainly deal with local enlistees of WW1 and WW2 as well as acknowledgment of Afghanistan casualties.

7.       Several members spoke to the recent deaths of Nathan Cirillo and Patrice Vincent in apparent terror attacks in Ottawa and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu.
