August 29, 2017 Minutes of the TMHC


We began the meeting with a few book selections and recommendations 

 

1. Fight to the Finish by Tim Cook - Featuring dozens of black-and-white photographs and moving excerpts from letters and diaries of servicemen, Fight to the Finish broadens our understanding of the Second World War with a gripping account of Canadians who fought abroad, and the home front that was changed forever.

2. Dirty Little Secrets of WW2 - Dirty Little Secrets of World War II exposes the dark, irreverent, misunderstood, and often tragicomic aspects of military operations during World War II, many of them virtually unknown even to military buffs.

Movie recommendation: Megan Leavey - The true life story of Megan Leavey, a young Marine corporal whose unique discipline and bond with a military combat dog saved many lives during her deployment in Iraq.

---------------_____________________________________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.
