Join us Thursday September 18, 2014 for a Members’ Sharing Session to commemorate the First World War Centenary (2014-2018)
War broke out in Europe 100 years ago in the summer of 1914. The four years of conflict that followed cost the lives of millions of people, affected millions more and left long-lasting legacies in the countries involved. To kick-off the Sharing Session, Jim McQueen will relate the poignant story of two brothers that enlisted in the "war to end war."
If your ancestors did not serve in the armed forces, tell us about how they were affected on the home front. Feel free to share photographs, medals, newspaper articles, etc. Subject to time, the topic may be expanded to include other wars.
The meeting will be held in Studio 2 at The Reach: 1:00 pm for the business meeting; 1:30 pm for the sharing session. Doors open at 12:30 pm. There is a nominal fee of $2.00 for non-members.
Please notify Jim Muirhead at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are going to share. We need your voices to make this a worthwhile session.
