June 27, 2017 Minutes of the TMHC

 

In a departure from previous meeting agenda, members spoke briefly about their own, their father's, their uncle's, their family's or another relative's experiences with WW2.  

Stories ranged from the occupation of Belgium, fleeing Lativia from the Nazis, a father's sacrifice from a U-boat in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, a father's experience in the RAF, an uncle's sniper career,  an uncle's capture at Dieppe and imprisonment, and grandparents in Berlin during and after the war.

 

A suggestion was made that members should write up a one - two page summary or bio of the war's impact on them or their family members and that these be published to the military history web page to share.

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.
