Oshawa Historical Society Annual Research Symposium 2013

016The Oshawa Historical Society is inviting you to attend an evening of discovery and community celebration at our Annual Research Symposium.  The Society is welcoming three groups, beginning with students from Oshawa Central Collegiate who will share their research from the Durham Memorial Project, which discusses the lives of people who fought for Canada during World War I.  A representative from Heritage Oshawa will present on who they are, what they do, and their updated Heritage Inventory.  Finally, Oshawa Community Museum staff will reflect back 10 years to the evening of the Guy House fire.  This special presentation will discuss the devastating evening on December 17, 2003, the rebuilding of the heritage home, and how far the museum has come and how it has thrived in the 10 years since the fire.

The Oshawa Historical Society’s Research Symposium is taking place Tuesday, November 19 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.
