Please join the Oshawa Historical Society on Tuesday March 19 when we welcome Earl Wotton and Gary Bazowsky from the Ontario Regiment Museum to speak about the early history of the Ontario Regiment.  The Ontario Regiment, or the 34th Regiment, is one of the oldest continuing regiments in Canada and one of the senior existing armoured regiments in the country.  It saw service in the Fenian Raids, the Northwest Rebellion and in both World Wars, a long standing part of Oshawa’s history.

The Oshawa Historical Society’s February Speaker Series is taking place Tuesday, March 19th at 7PM.  The meetings are held at the Oshawa Public Library, McLaughlin Branch Auditorium, located at 65 Bagot Street, Oshawa.  Admission to the Oshawa Historical Society Speaker Series is $3 or FREE for members of the Oshawa Historical Society.
