The 2015 Annual Community History Project General Meeting will be held Sunday Sept 13 1:30pm - 4:30 pm. This year the public is invited, but only current membership can vote and run for Board positions.

We also will have the privilege of hearing from Wendy Smith, this year’s guest speaker. Wendy is the winner of the 2014 Heritage Toronto Award of Excellence (Media) and will be presenting “Introducing Edward Harbord” the story of the British Lord who played an important yet very little talked about role in the British anti-slavery movement. We invite you to RSVP for this year’s AGM by email or by telephone to 416- 515-7546.
