Dave Mowat is the quintessential historian — dedicated to the subject he is presenting, possessed of massive amounts of detailed aldervilleknowledge and at the same time is a warm and engaging man, one committed to expanding the understanding of the indigenous people, their culture, their values and their place in the broad picture of Canada. He has an amazing amount of detail, specific facts related to the topic at hand, be it contemporary relations, the contribution of members of the Alderville community or the individuals who fought at Crysler’s Farm against the American attempt to capture Montréal in order to isolate British and colonial forces and so hand us over to the American nation. I am looking forward to his presentation!

Join us for Dave’s presentation on Tuesday, January 22, at Victoria Hall. Doors open at 7:00 PM for coffee and cookies. The meeting begins at 7:30 PM. Admission, including refreshments, is free for members and $5 for non-members. Annual membership is $25 for individuals and $30 for a family. All are welcome so bring a friend or two!
