Dear members and futur members,

We will show a film of an interview with Christopher Plummer, the late actor who spent his early years in Senneville. The interview can be found on the internet at the address shown below, but we plan to view it as a group, and have a discussion about Mr. Plummer”s life and career. You may recall that Mr. Plummer's autobiography, entitled 'A Man for All Stages', was the subject of one of the issues of L'Espoir-du-bout-de-l'île.

Outings

We are thinking about planning a fall outing in early October. The outing would consist of visits to the Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul in Montréal, and the Sir William Osler Medical Museum at McGill. The date has yet to be determined.


In the Spring of 2020, the Rev. James Armour, who is Pastor Emeritus at St.Andrew and St. Paul, was scheduled to give us a presentation about the history of the church. Because of the COVID pandemic, the presentation did not take place, but Rev. Amour submitted an article entitled 'Let's Build a Cathedral',which was pu blished in L'Espoir-du-bout-de-l'île.

In the fall of 2021, Donna George made an excellent presentation to the Historical Society entitled 'The Black Watch Window Turns 100'. Donna's presentation showed a series of images of the beautiful stained glass windows at St. Andrew's and St. Paul's.


In the fall of 2019, we visited the Osler Medical Museum, which was housed in temporary quarters because its location in the McIntyre building was damagedby fire. The repairs have been completed, and the museum is now moving back into its permanent home. The move is expected to be finished in time for our visit in October.


If you are interested in going on the outing, please inform Doreen Croll at doreen.croll@gmail.com
